Yes, that's the best way. The quickest way will probably be to use our old SPoC occam2 to C translator. No need to worry about instruction sets and a built-in runtime. I can probably resurrect it quite quickly.

It does rely on some rather old (Cocktail) tools, but that shouldn't be a big problem.

If anyone wants it, I'll dust off the old code and take a look.

Hi Denis,
While the Transterpreter version of Kroc Occam that I have working on the Raspberry Pi seems to be running fine, an occam2 to C translator would be extremely useful to me.  I will then be able to meld the occam output c-code with the c output from the aplc to c translator I use for array manipulation. The aim is to use occam as a wiring harness between the apl nodes.
