Let's Build a Compiler... in F#!

F# translation of Jack Crenshaw's Pascal code from his article, "Let's Build A Compiler".

Have fun!

Running the Application

Start by running the tests.

You can also use the compiler interactively. Run the project Lbac.Compiler and it will compile a line after you press enter.

Finally, you can run non-interactively, using files:

> copy con > Foo.txt
> Lbac.Compiler -i Foo.txt -o Bar.exe

This produces a console application which returns the result (3!).
