      The optimizations is the interesting thing about compilers. Everything else is just textbook.

        Ugh, static variables everywhere (yes it is a hobbyist project, but still...).

          learning how a C compiler works from some source code instead of studying? Good luck with that.

              Why not?
              What is wrong with the MIT License?

                It causes people to confront reality and the ugliness of GPL3.

                  Maybe it's just an optimization technique... you know, cuz the compiler won't do it for them.

                    Nice project. I like that "It's intended to support all C11 language features while keeping the code as small and simple as possible.".
