I knew it! And its not a slouch. And Spirit was written on
a Mac using CW. I recall reading that Metrowerks got
this compiler with pluggable back-ends from a guy named
(geez I can't recall). But they hired him and the rest is history.

Cool! RD is not a dead-end.

PS> What do you guys think of the <sequential-or>
and <sequential-and> stuff in my last post? I'm so
eager to kno-o-o-ow ;-)

sequential-or ==> a | b | ab ==> a || b (proposed spirit)
sequential-and ==> ab ==> a && b (proposed spirit)

(see my other post, below the micro-parser stuff)

Hey, Vesa's micro-parser idea is so cool, I love it so!
