A Scheme to C compiler by Tanel Tammet <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Hobbit attempts to retain most of the original Scheme program structure, making the output C program readable and modifiable. Hobbit is written in Scheme and is able to self-compile. Hobbit release 1 works together with the scm release scm4b3. Future releases of scm and hobbit will be coordinated.
High order bit. The most significant bit (of a byte). Also known as the meta bit or high bit.
