Compiling the compiler.

I must be blind but I can't find the text on how to compile the compiler after making changes to it. Basically I am going through the "halt" tutorial again and want to try compiling it before jumping into abort and halt.

You can use the command-line on one hand. This means making the compiler with the Makefile within the src folder, there you call 'make'. Or you can use Eclipse instead. There you need to setup an ocamlbuild project using the OcaIDE Eclipse plugin. This is described briefly in the Windows part of the readme file and we've shown it with the projector once. But we can talk about this later in the lab if you wish.

Ah yes, it was the command line version I needed. Eclipse is... eclipse.

Might as well show up to the lab though, having some severe issues with understanding the second part of this lab so I have a couple questions :)
