What Can I Do For You?

How have I done before?

Eric is smart, hard-working, cheerful, enthusiastic, quick-learning,
and a creative problem solver.  We've called upon him several times at
very short notice, when we needed to throw together a demo, or hack up
some new features, and time was short.

Eric always dives into our code enthusiastically, no matter how hacky
or crufty it is before a deadline.  He works hard to deliver results
on time; if he hits a wall, he finds a way around it.

In a startup, deadlines can be stressful and tempers can sometimes run
high; Eric's cheerfulness and relentless positivity avoids escalating
any situation.

All in all, Eric is a great developer and a great guy.  I wouldn't
recommend you hire him though, because we found him first.

Turns this (not so good example of a factorial function):

; Example 1: Function declaration
(print "\n--- Example 1 ---\n")
(defun ! (n) 
  (cond ((== n 0) 1)
        ((== n 1) 1)
        (true (* n (! (- n 1))))))
(print (! 100))

into this:

local _9obj_call = print("\n--- Example 1 ---\n")
function __c33__(n)
  -- ::LINE_6_COLUMN_3::
  local _nqh3_cond
  do
    if (0 == n) then
      -- ::LINE_6_COLUMN_18::

      _nqh3_cond = 1
      goto _nqh3_cond
    end
    if (1 == n) then
      -- ::LINE_7_COLUMN_18::

      _nqh3_cond = 1
      goto _nqh3_cond
    end
    if true then
      -- ::LINE_8_COLUMN_15::
      local _3qps_call = __c33__((n - 1))
      _nqh3_cond = (n * _3qps_call)
      goto _nqh3_cond
    end
  ::_nqh3_cond::
  end
  return _nqh3_cond
end
local _4nxl_call = __c33__(100)
local _z9e4_call = print(_4nxl_call)
