-====== Tailspin Javascript Interpreter ====== 
-The Tailspin Javascript interpreter used to run the algorithms on this wiki is a fully reversible, standards-compliant,​ meta-circular Javascript interpreter. As well as running in the browser and allowing algorithms to be visualised, it can run code both forwards and backwards in time. It is written in [[continuation passing style]], so that the interpretation can be paused and controlled by the user. 
-See [[https://​​wthimbleby/​tailspin/​issues|Tailspin]] on GitHub. 
-===== ES5.1 Compliance ===== 
-Tailspin currently passes 99% of the [[http://​|ECMAScript Language test262]] test suite. 
-===== Reversibility ===== 
-Tailspin is able to run in a reversible mode, where state changes are recorded so that they can be undone, as well as a non-revsersible mode which is slightly faster and more memory efficient. 
-In reversible mode almost all state changes can be undone. Some state changes such as ''​Object.freeze()''​ and ''​Object.seal()''​ are not reversible at the moment as Tailspin uses the browser'​s Javascript objects and the effect of these functions is permanent.
