tonight I will keep grinding on my arbitrary query engine (similar in generalized notion to Apache Drill), but focused on local work.
I've wanted to do this for _forever_.
Update. Csv loading accomplished.
Next will be indexes and a pass through of queries.
This is following out the path I etched out years ago, and avoiding technical rat holes I went into then. 😅
Following on to that will be seeing how Armed Bear can be used as the front end.
tonight I will look into indexes for querying the data. It's just a fast-lookup data structure over a column.
here's the thing when you are deeply interacting with code at this level, possibilities of system design shimmer before you eyes like Lisp.
I'm definitely going to do the ABCL front end, it might be where I write the query planner itself.
