Maxwells Equations of Software.[edit]

This is a program by Jan Nieuwenhuizen to reduce the bootstrap binaries of GuixSD to nothing!

mes implements a lisp interpreter written in C, that is able to run mescc which by using nyacc for parsing and mescc-tools for linking functions as a C compiler.

mescc includes its own libc, written in C and is able to compile mes thus providing a full loop bootstrap.
