Who am I?
My name is Rasmus Svensson, but I often go by the nickname
raek (occasionally raekmannen).
I attend my fifth year at the Computer Engineering curriculum at
Linköping University, Sweden.
I also have a blog
What do I do?
I like code.
These are the projects that I have actually finished:
utf8-with-fallback – A family of charsets for Java or the JVM
- This library provides a family of decoding charsets which work just
like UTF-8, but falls back to another charset (for example ISO 8859-1)
for invalid sequences. This can be particularly useful in situations
where multiple charsets are in use at the same place, such as old file
formats or protocols with undefined or broken coding semantics.
Projects I have contributed to:
irclj – An IRC bot library for Clojure
- I have been involved in making the bot aware of when it gets
disconnected and in some planning for the future of the library.
clojure – A Lisp hosted on the JVM
- Literally, a pair of bug reports and fixes.
Some of my ongoing projects:
map-exception – A proposal for an error handling system for Clojure
- Clojure is an awesome programming language, but due to technical
complications, it does not currently have any obvious
one-to-rule-them-all facility for signalling and handling errors. This
library is an exploration of what such a thing could look like.
- thiudinassus – A computer version of the board game Carcassonne
- I'm writing it in Clojure.
- gophure – A Gopher client library for Clojure
- Gopher is a very simple and interesting protocol. No programming
language is complete without a Gopher library.
- impojure – A library for reading and writing Java class files
- My intention for this Clojure library is to make it simple to create
a toy language and have it compile into Java bytecode. It could also
be used to make tools that analyze existing Java bytecode.
