Sasa-0.9.4-RC5 Uploaded to Sourceforge and Nuget

Since I recently finished documenting the core Sasa assembly, I decided to upload -RC4. Of course, then I ran into an issue with Nuget, which forced me to update my version number to -RC5 in order to overwrite an improperly uploaded package. So here is Sasa 0.9.4-RC5:

  • Sourceforge: download all assemblies and ilrewrite in one package. CHM documentation file available as a separate download. Documentation available online here.
  • Sasa on Nuget: the core Sasa.dll (no dependencies)
  • Sasa.Arrow on Nuget: arrows for .NET (depends on Sasa.dll)
  • Sasa.Binary on Nuget: low-level functions on bitdata (no dependencies)
  • Sasa.Collections on Nuget: purely functional lists, trees, stacks (depends on Sasa.dll, Sasa.Binary.dll)
  • Sasa.Concurreny on Nuget: concurrent abstractions including faster thread-local data and software transactional memory (depends on Sasa.dll)
  • Sasa.Contracts on Nuget: a simple reimplementation of Microsoft's code contracts (no dependencies)
  • Sasa.FP on Nuget: more obscure functional abstractions like binomial collections, lenses and function currying (depends on Sasa.dll and Sasa.Collections.dll)
  • Sasa.IoC on Nuget: a simple inversion of control container based on delegates (no dependencies)
  • Sasa.Linq on Nuget: extensions on LINQ expressions, including a faster evaluator/compiler, expression substitutions, and base classes for query providers and expression visitors (depends on Sasa.dll)
  • Sasa.Mime on Nuget: extended media type directory and mappings between file extensions and media types (no dependencies)
  • Sasa.Net on Nuget: network extensions, including a POP3 client, MIME message parsing, and a preliminary HTTP session state machine (depends on Sasa.dll and Sasa.Collections.dll)
  • Sasa.Numerics on Nuget: analytical extensions for .NET, including statistical functions, minimal steiner tree approximations and dense matrix math (no dependencies)
  • Sasa.Parsing on Nuget: typed, extensible lexing and parsing library (depends on Sasa.dll)
  • Sasa.Reactive on Nuget: reactive properties (named and unnamed) and futures (depends on Sasa.dll)
  • Sasa's ilrewrite on Nuget: Sasa's IL rewriter (no dependencies)

Please let me know if there are problems with any of the downloads, or with Sasa itself.

Do you know how to test nuget packages?

Not really. I was just using the nuget UI program which makes it easy to publish. Too easy even, since I made a few mistakes and published too soon. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears!

async.h - asynchronous, stackless subroutines in C

The async/await idiom is becoming increasingly popular. The first widely used language to include it was C#, and it has now spread into JavaScript and Rust. Now C/C++ programmers don't have to feel left out, because async.h is a header-only library that brings async/await to C! Features: It's 100% portable C. It requires very little state (2 bytes). It's not dependent on an OS. It's a bit simpler to understand than protothreads because the async state is caller-saved rather than callee-saved. #include "async.h" struct async pt; struct timer timer; async example(struct async *pt) { async_begin(pt); while(1) { if(initiate_io()) { timer_start(&timer); await(io_completed() || timer_expired(&timer)); read_data(); } } async_end; } This library is basically a modified version of the idioms found in the Protothreads library by Adam Dunkels, so it's not truly ground bre

Easy Automatic Differentiation in C#

I've recently been researching optimization and automatic differentiation (AD) , and decided to take a crack at distilling its essence in C#. Note that automatic differentiation (AD) is different than numerical differentiation . Math.NET already provides excellent support for numerical differentiation . C# doesn't seem to have many options for automatic differentiation, consisting mainly of an F# library with an interop layer, or paid libraries . Neither of these are suitable for learning how AD works. So here's a simple C# implementation of AD that relies on only two things: C#'s operator overloading, and arrays to represent the derivatives, which I think makes it pretty easy to understand. It's not particularly efficient, but it's simple! See the "Optimizations" section at the end if you want a very efficient specialization of this technique. What is Automatic Differentiation? Simply put, automatic differentiation is a technique for calcu

Building a Query DSL in C#

I recently built a REST API prototype where one of the endpoints accepted a string representing a filter to apply to a set of results. For instance, for entities with named properties "Foo" and "Bar", a string like "(Foo = 'some string') or (Bar > 99)" would filter out the results where either Bar is less than or equal to 99, or Foo is not "some string". This would translate pretty straightforwardly into a SQL query, but as a masochist I was set on using Google Datastore as the backend, which unfortunately has a limited filtering API : It does not support disjunctions, ie. "OR" clauses. It does not support filtering using inequalities on more than one property. It does not support a not-equal operation. So in this post, I will describe the design which achieves the following goals: A backend-agnostic querying API supporting arbitrary clauses, conjunctions ("AND"), and disjunctions ("OR"). Implemen
