I wish the result of compilation could run as an independent process without the virtual machine you distribute.

You succeeded in doing thinks withoug GC, so this is doable.

Once we generate "real" code, the compiler will be separate.
Alternatively, we could create a disk representation of the ParaSail
Virtual Machine instructions, much like the ".class" files created for
Java.

Agreed, this is certainly doable, and we are headed that direction.

The Java Virtual Machines takes at least a few megabytes, and in some application for Parasail that I have in mind (phones, ...) this is just too much. I would prefer "real" code.
