Great article, thanks for

Great article, thanks for sharing that.


Nice idea to use the C's stack as a GC heap in order to enable tail calls.

I have seen that lots of languages use C as the back-end, but C has some limitations. I wonder what changes C must have in order to be used effectively as a back-end language (if any).


C-- may be a place to start looking.

Thank you.

It seems very interesting. Off to studying it...
