Rc - parser and backends for 'rc' shell


If you need a synposis, you should start with an easier project.


The design of this module is similar to the design of B, the perl compiler backend.


'rc' has a cleaner syntax in comparison to sh or csh. If your going to go through the unpleasantness of learning to program in a shell, it might as well be 'rc'.
