The writeup is at just the right level for a curious reader with no formal background in compilers. Thanks! I always wanted to know how compilers work, but was afraid to ask. I heard rumors of ASTs and so on, but never really delved into the process. Perhaps you could write 1000 words on ASTs, next , please? :)
Oh that’s a good idea, I have a rant or two about representing languages with variables bottled up..
