The C++ support is in an *extremely* early phase right now. There's
only named operators, bool, parsing for C++ casts, and references in
there right now. Some of the things to be done with the C++ casts and
- Do semantic analysis for reference initialization.
- Do semantic analysis for casts.
There's obviously a lot more to do. I would suggest taking small
steps; learning the code base and its architecture by adding smaller
features of the language. As far as a specific list of items, there
isn't any official one. Though I'd start with the two I mentioned
above (I have some code for the second of those, if you'd like to see
it) and proceed from there.
