Yab to C converter
#11
The extension .yab is only used for convenience. There is no requirement to have an extension on a yab script and any filename is acceptable for s script, bound or built program.

After looking at the documentation for the latest version of Bison, I see it can generate C++ code directly so the need to update the interpreter is not so desperate. I'll put the bulk of my efforts into the transpiler first.

The core is taking shape.  I think I just passed 1500 lines of code.  https://github.com/SamuraiCrow/Yab2Cpp

This is looking good. Any hint on how to compile it, or is there a make file?

I'm just roughing in a first-draft for now.  Once I finish the function and variable support frameworks, maybe the print statement also, I'll start testing without the parser just to see if it generates executable code.  I can try to make a makefile pretty soon and then the bug-hunting can commence!  The last time I programmed in C++ was before C++11 was out and shared_ptr, "auto" to declare iterators and unordered_map have me spoiled!

Well it compiles to object code now. Getting it to link is going to be tricky and will take serious organizational skills.

Yay object files!

Added a bunch of static initializers and now it builds and links! Now I need to finish the arrays and print statements so I can do test cases.

I had to make a link in /boot/home/config/non-packaged/bin called clang++ linking to /boot/system/develop/tools/bin/g++ to get it to build.

I've now fixed the Makefile so that it'll build on GCC.  I was using LLVM's Clang compiler because it gave better error messages.
