Compiler is on what platform? : LUSENET : REBOL : One Thread

Just curious as to what platform you're developing the compiler, and when binaries might become available to play with...

Right now I am developing it on a Windows NT machine, but the back end is targeted for a portable runtime system, so it should run on '95, Linux, and Mac. While I have compiled to machine code, I'm planning on focusing the first release to a byte-code compiled runtime engine.

I'm planning on releasing the sources fairly soon.

I don't have the resources REBOL has, so the first release will simply not be as polished as REBOL is, but I'd like to at least be able to have a couple of example programs to demonstrate how to compile REBOL and how to hack the compiler to extend it.

Thanks for asking.
