HAC: the Compiler which will Never Become Big

In the Ada world, we are surrounded by impressive and professional tools that can handle large and complex projects. Did you ever dream of a tiny, incomplete but compatible system to play with? Are you too impatient, when developing small pieces of code, for long compile-bind-link-run cycles? Are you a beginner intimidated by project files and sophisticated tools? Then HAC (the HAC Ada Compiler, or the Hello-world Ada Compiler) is for you.

HAC is a revival of the SmallAda project, which supported the "Pascal subset" plus tasking.
