In Chapter 5, Control Constructs of this series, we took a look at control constructs, and developed parsing routines to translate them into object code. We ended up with a nice, relatively rich set of constructs.
As we left the parser, though, there was one big hole in our capabilities: we did not address the issue of the branch condition. To fill the void, I introduced to you a dummy parse routine called Condition, which only served as a place-keeper for the real thing.
One of the things we'll do in this session is to plug that hole by expanding Condition into a true parser/translator.
