I've had a general feel for what the word means... but I've never found an
exact definition or overview of how they work.
So, what exactly is an incremental compiler?
[It's a compiler that adds code to the running program a piece at a time
rather than building the program all at once, the pieces can be as short
as a single line or as large as a routine. -John]
