MagLev Documentation

with 3 comments

MagLev is based on the 3.0 version of GemStone’s 64-bit VM. We do not currently have MagLev specific manuals, but the GemStone/S 3.0 manuals are still a good source of information.

  • 3.0 System Administration Guide (pdf). Look at this if you want to tune the system, make backups, etc.
  • 3.0 Programming Guide (pdf) Programmer’s view of the GemStone VM. Good overview of features not yet exposed to the Ruby crowd. All functions should be available via MagLev’s Smalltalk FFI.
  • 3.0 Topaz Programming Environment (pdf). If you find yourself at the topaz> prompt, you are in the raw, command line interface to the VM (the debugger). This manual covers the basic commands you can issue. The 3.0 version of topaz contains many new commands to work with the ruby environment (type “help” at the topaz prompt).
