43
44    ==============================
45    other SHORT TERM =============  (including needed for LIC)
46    ==============================
47
48    test/uninit.diderot:
49    documents need for better compiler error messages when output variables
50    are not initialized; the current messages are very cryptic

61      rgb = real{3}      rgb = real{3}
62      rgba = real{4}      rgba = real{4}
63
64    ==============================
65    MEDIUM TERM ================== (including needed for streamlines & tractography)
66    ==============================
67
68    ability to declare a field in such a way so that probe
69    positions are *always* clamped to the support of "inside";
70    there are many cases where this is the sensible behavior
71
72    ability to emit/track/record variables into dynamically re-sized
73    runtime buffer
74
75    evals & evecs for symmetric tensor[3,3]
76
77    tensor fields: convolution on general tensor images
78
79    Use of Teem's "hest" command-line parser for getting
80    any input variables that are not defined in the source file
81
82    Save Diderot output to nrrd, instead of "mip.txt"
83      For grid of strands, save to similarly-shaped array
84      For list of strands, save to long 1-D (or 2-D for non-scalar output) list
85      For ragged things (like tractography output), will need to save both
86        complete list of values, as well as list of start indices and lengths
87        to index into complete list
88
89    ==============================
90    other MEDIUM TERM ============ (needed for particles)
91    ==============================
92
93    run-time birth and death of strands
94
95    "initially" supports lists
96
97    "initially" supports lists of positions output from
98    different initalization Diderot program
99
100    spatial data structure that permits strands' queries of neighbors
101
102    proper handling of stabilize method
103
104    test/vr-kcomp2.diderot: Add support for code like
105
106            (F1 if x else F2)@pos
107
108    This will require duplication of the continuation of the conditional (but we should only
109    duplicate over the live-range of the result of the conditional.
110
111    ==============================
112    other MEDIUM TERM ============
113    ==============================
114
115    want: warnings when "D" (reserved for differentiation) is declared as
116    a variable name (get confusing error messages now)
117
118    support for Python interop and GUI
119
120    ==============================
121    LONG TERM ====================
122    ==============================
123
124    Better handling of variables that determines the scope of a variable
125    based on its actual use, instead of where the user defined it.  So,
126    for example, we should lift strand-invariant variables to global
127    scope.  Also prune out useless variables, which should include field
128    variables after the translation to mid-il.
129
130    co- vs contra- index distinction
131
132    add ":" for tensor dot product (contracts out two indices
133    instead of one like •), valid for all pairs of tensors with
134    at least two indices
135
136    some indication of tensor symmetry
137    (have to identify the group of index permutations that are symmetries)
138
139    dot works on all tensors
140
141    outer works on all tensors
142
143    Einstein summation notation
144
145    "tensor comprehension" (like list comprehension)
146
147    Python/ctypes interface to run-timez
148
149    ======================
150    BUGS =================
151    ======================
152
153    test/norm2.diderot:
154    "normalize()" doesn't work on vec2
155
156    test/fields.diderot:
157    documents various bugs/questions associated with field expressions
158
159    test/mip-cam.diderot:
160        // generated C code looks like "(float)p_ui_0--0.5e0f"
161        //real rayU = 2.0*camUmax*(real(ui) - -0.5)/real(imgResU) - camUmax;
162
163    test/vr-kcomp.diderot:
164        // HEY (scoping BUG): the strand parameters (e.g. ui, vi) ...
165
166    test/zslice2.diderot:
167    // but is this not valid syntax for creating field in one shot?
168    //field#2(3)[] F = (load("../data/zimg112.nrrd")) ⊛ bspln3;
169    // It is valid syntax, but there is a bug in the conversion from HighIL to MidIL
170
171    test/zslice2.diderot:
172    // HEY (bug) bspln5 leads to problems ...
173    //  uncaught exception Size [size]
174    //    raised at c-target/c-target.sml:47.15-47.19
175    //field#4(3)[] F = img ⊛ bspln5;
