Truly, a man like no other.
Aren't portions of all C compilers, aside from tcc, lost to time and you can only bootstrap them beginning from certain pre-compiled versions of themselves? When talking about other languages, a lot of them started with C as the ground base so you'd need to check that as well. This shit is making my head hurt.
Intel ME taught me to distrust my fucking CPU. Even hand-written assembly compilers won't cut it.
