Hello everybody,

I can answer that: YES, very much !!!

Honestly, it was a bit of a disappointment to discover that the
tutorial had been left unfinished. It's thanks to the Jack Crenshaw
tutorial that I became really enthusiastic about compiler construction
making it look so much simpler than i'd expected.

I too, followed the tutorial, having switched from Pascal to C from
the very start. And after a while, let's say about half way the
tutorial, I started experimenting a bit myself slowly abandoning the
Pascal-like syntax of TINY and KISS moving towards a more C-like

So, I'm definitely interrested and hope not to be the only positive

                        Bye, Huub
