This may be a dumb question but how come the assembler (at least
for the apollos) isn't written in T? The same information is
needed for assembling the code as for generating it along
with some extra stuff. Wouldn't one then be able to have
incremental compilation as well?
Right. We used a separate assembler in bringing up T because that
was expedient. For the next major version of the compiler we intend
to have a built-in assembler and to support in-core compilation.
