Then, I noticed that it would be too much work at once to bring all the Unix facilities to Windows (I tried the excellent Cygwin32 and mingw32 ports of gcc, but that was not enough). Then I thought of having Self on SCO OpenServer, of which I had a noncommercial copy. As things were not easy, I cut all down to the smallest step I could think of. And that was Solaris x86.

I always wanted to learn how such a great system works. And who knows what else can be achieved when more people try different solutions to the same problem...

Maybe we could get earlier to working system if we 
share our results. 

How did you handle the stuff with the code generator? 
What did you do with the stack frame? 

Do you think, recompile.c or convert.c have to be 
functional as long as SIC is disabled?
