Yes! Chapter 2 is finished! Read it to get ready to start building a real compiler in the next chapter. Learn how compilers & interpreters work and set up all the tools you need (C++ compiler, assembler, etc).

Been attending the UCF Robotics team the last month or so. We are finally forming groups and I’ve decided to help with the vision system. So I’m going to be up to my ears in pixels and graphics!
Whew! I spent a solid week trying to build a pasta bridge for my engineering class competition. We used lasagna, fettuccine, and tube noodles and melted sugar to build a standard arch bridge. Although not terribly strong, it looked like a bridge…unlike most of the other contestants. We got our picture taken, actually! Anyhow, our bridge weight 371 grams and held 2,200 grams, so it held nearly 7 times its weight! Not bad…but not particularly good, either!
Today is my sister’s birthday…sweet sixteen! So I sent her an online card and a knitted penguin. That’s why there hasn’t been much activity…I’ve been up at 2 AM knitting like old grandma used to do. Anyhow, the Compiler Tutorial is comming along. Chapter 1 is in final form, just need to convert it to a couple more formats. Expect it soon!
