Thank you very much.


Just looking at the code I almost understand it all. I'm looking
forward to running it.


For me this is a labor of love but at the moment it's just laborious.
  I've wanted to learn to write a compiler for years. So many concepts
and intricacies that I never had to think about just using a language
are becoming painfully obvious to me as a first time compiler writer.


Syntax analysis, semantic analysis, error recovery has my head
throbbing. I really want my first compiler to be completely hand
written so I can really appreciate the intricacies of writing one. At
the same time I'm thinking there are tools available that would make
the job so much simpler, probably faster, with fewer errors. I could
build my own house or I can give the specs to a machine and let it
build a chunk of it for me. Which one is better, hmmmm?
