I'm not into programming and compiling my own stuff but I pay as much
attention as I can to everything that is said here.
I remember someone explaining the gcc bootstrap workings and mentioning
that you can specify the number of stages gcc will make to bootstrap.
I had this in mind when I wrote:
B(a(abc)B(aBc)c(abc))<- It needs three stages
B(A(ABC)B(ABC)C(AB-))<- Here, only two
And yes, this is a b__l-s__t, elementary-school level explanation. :(
