I don't want to sound like an ass but isn't C64/C128 BASIC a scripting language? :)

But i'm trying to adopt/create someting more modern.

i would like to experiment the idea to use a 16bit opcodes with registers based instructions. I'm thinking to translate this instructions with relative 6010 opcodes. on top use a language like lua.

An evolution of sweet16 but without a vm, just translate in 8bit opcodes.

Thank you. "pawn scripting language" gives plenty of relevant hits, so yes, that was a good name change :)

And as for scripting languages on the C64, I've experimented a bit with it, but in the end I just settled on using C for those parts that don't need the performance of asm. Since projects are limited to a few dozen kB of code you don't really bump into the problems that large C codebases struggle with. The only practical drawback I've found is that, at least cc65, generates code that's a little more bloated than a small VM interpreter or hand written asm.

why not simply use BASIC for scripting? :)

And the BASIC interpreter sprays all over large areas of memory, especially zero page.
