-This is a work in progress! The process for bootstrapping Hare is as follows:
-1. Write the [bootstrap compiler] in C, and a [specification] which
- describes the language.
-2. Write the [build driver] in Hare, and at least as much of the
- [standard library] which is necessary to make it work.
-3. Write the hosted compiler in Hare. At this point, Hare is fully bootstrapped.
-4. Expand the standard library until it's useful for general purpose systems
- programming. Write programs in Hare. Provide benefit to society.
-Right now, stages 1 and 2 are mostly complete, and we're working on stages 3 and
-4 in parallel.
-Explanation of terms:
-- bootstrap compiler: a Hare compiler written in C, primarily used for the
- purpose of bringing up a working Hare toolchain from scratch.
-- hosted compiler: a more sophisticated Hare compiler, written in Hare,
- designed to be the compiler used for day-to-day language use.
-- build driver: similar to make, its purpose is to collect source files, track
- their dependencies, and build them into Hare programs.
