Compiler works (minimally)!!!

Version 0.0.1 of marsupial/wombat has successfully run on one specific program ("print 42").

At this point I should say a lot more and there should be docs, etc. But all that will have to wait.

The code is at:

The next version, 0.0.2, will aim to run the factorial program backwards. Then I'll retire unless I find some collaborators.

The compiler is in python 3. All the bugs would have been found by type checking. [Update: 0.0.2 development have revealed a few "real" logic bugs, but I certainly plan for the actual compiler to use python type-checking.]

  1. Starting 0.0.2 shows bugs in 0.0.1 that won't be fixed there.
