The BaCon compiler (actually a translator to C then calls gcc) is written in Bash and BaCon. The former requires Bash v4 -- I got an error with the older Bash used in Puppy. However, using Bash version 4.1 I was able to compile the BaCon compiler that is written in BaCon -- this means that Bash is no longer required.
I have created 'bacon-1.0.12-q1.pet' that will be in the 'devx' SFS of the next release of Quirky. It has binary executable /usr/bin/bacon, and in /usr/share/BaCon I have placed a collection of files needed to use BaCon, including documentation.
I have uploaded the PET package:
