This is a tiny C compiler, I wrote it in a very restricted dialect of OCaml. It is in the same family as otcc but will work for the x86_64 architecture. My medium term goal is to port it into the C dialect it compiles, so I can bootstrap the thing. It will generate dynamically linked ELF files for the 64bits architecture x86_64 (AMD64 or IA-32e). It has no intermediate language and generates code as it parses the C source file. This makes it very fast, unsafe and unoptimizing. Code generated sucks, no doubt, but the compiler is very short and understandable.
