Aren't you supposed to do requirements first?

It has been a while since posting. A while since working on Tangent really. The project ran into a rather large, hard to find blocking bug. Combined with work and the length it takes to get up to speed again in between coding sessions, nothing got done.

After some consideration and discussion with peers the project is going to take a few steps back. There is going to be some requirements defined to help with the 'up to speed' problem. They will also help expand the automated tests, and aid refactoring the code to something less complex. More tests, less complexity should lead to easier debugging.

The current requirements doc can be found here. At time of writing, the introduction and language overview is done. Nitty gritty specification and grammar are yet to come. As always, feedback of any sort is welcome.
