Hel: huangho's Experimental Language

This is a simple, quick-and-dirty compiler from a simple Lisp-like language to C, written in Guile Scheme.

Installing and running

You will need:

Currently only 64-bit architectures are supported (and I've only tested on x86-64 so far).

src/compile.scm is a Guile program which takes two arguments: a Hel file to compile and the name of the resulting C file.

If you just want to run a Hel program, you can call src/runhel.sh file.hel; it will compile the Hel file to C, call GCC on it, and run the resulting binary.
