Well, I'm working on my own, and my compiler is going swell! I'm
working on a new language, designed to be as simple as possible (a
little bit like Basic, just modified a lot), and I'm doing it on my
own. However, C/C++ and Java are pretty tough, since it's hard to put
them into BNF, and all that, but it's just a lot of work, and I still
think that one or two programmers should be enough. The only tool
you'll really need is a programming language :-), I'm using Turbo
Pascal, and it's doing great!
Just my opinion, I don't think it's THAT hard!
