V4 Javascript Engine

Why it was created?

Hacking

TODO: maybe explain main purprose of some subprojects (where parsing, where optimisations, where jitter is executed..)

You need to set specific environment variables to debug this engine. In this wiki only few of them are described. To get full list of them you can try to open qtdeclarative.pro and search for text qgetenv("QV4_.

QV4_SHOW_IR prints intermediate representation of code. It's rather long output because many optimisation techniques are applied. QV4_SHOW_ASM prints dissassembly ouput. If it prints message disassembly not available for range I will need to define some macroses for C++ preprocessor. I haven't succeeded to do it without any pain, so start your hacking from qtdeclarative/src/3rdparty/masm/disassembler/Disassembler.cpp .

= Running the EcmaScript 262 Test suite

  1. Check out the test suite submodule repository:
 git submodule update --init --checkout tests/manual/v4/test262
  1. Run the wrapper script in the tests/manual/v4 sub-directory:
   python ./test262.py
