This page is reserved for Kinsen's latest nanobot. This robot builds on the work from NanoInterpreter.

The robot is in the RoboRumble.

## Architecture

The robot understands a very small set of instructions: set, get, subtract, divide, if, call, and characterToInteger (CMD_SET, CMD_IF, CMD_SUBTRACT, CMD_DIVIDE, CMD_IF, CMD_CALL, and CMD_LITERAL). This instruction set provides the foundation for basic mathematical expressions. The expressions use prefix notation (e.g. + 5 2).

WhiteWhale has a large, but limited memory. The calls to Java functions are stored in STRING_TABLE and the commands are stored in COMMANDS.

The nanobot's most obvious shortcoming is its inability to do anything remotely object-oriented. There is no way to instantiate arbitrary objects.
