Why not? Writing a compiler is not all that difficult (assuming the
language being compiled isn't too large and complicated.) Writing a C
compiler singlehandedly in 6 months seems perfectly reasonable to
me. (Assuming one doesn't have to implement all the standard library
routines.) (A C++ compiler might be a bit too complicated, though.)
Writing a *good* compiler, on the other hand, is significantly more
difficult and time-consuming, but that wasn't the question.
