Creating a cross compiler, and parts on the way!

I've been writing a compiler backend for VBCC and am now getting some assembly output.  I'm starting to get the hang of the compiler's internals and am writing and compiling test programs to test the compiler.

Here is one of the test programs I made:

There is some assembly that was generated either inefficiently or incorrectly, but for the most part it's good.  This is the third program I have written and the other two now compile fine.  At some point it will be able to compile itself!

Also, I have ordered the parts and boards for the computer itself and they will arrive in a few days.

Happy Hacking!!
