You just quoted the comment out of the top of a program I'm working on.

It's just a lexer at this point[1] and the target is to also build the back 
end[2] (or ends), but other other than that you and I are thinking along 
the same lines.

[1] I've /only/ been working on it for like a year so I should be done soon 
[2] What can I say, I'm writing a COMPILER for fun. Don't say it, I've all 
ready been told I'm nuts.
