Weird Compiler

Because TeX and SH are wonderful VMs.

First Release —

Which are the most stable language or virtual machine? So stable that you don’t need to know the compiler’s version to be sure you can compile it. TeX is definitely one of them! Which ones are available on every Unix regardless of the operating system, version, libraries installed, etc? A POSIX shell is among them!

Unfortunately TeX is a difficult language. Both TeX and the Shell lack most of modern programming-language features. The Weird Compiler (WC) compiles a (yet minimalist) functional language to TeX or shell script.


WC is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 3 or any later.
