Version 0.1.0 of Cardinal can be downloaded from here 
http://rubyforge.org/projects/cardinal/ or it can be installed as a gem.

What is it?
======

Cardinal is a program to compile Ruby programs into Parrot code.

Status
=====
Cardinal will now generate Parrot code using the IMCBackend. Ruby code 
can be compiled and executed using the ParrotBackend.

Caveats
=====

It will only generate code for simple arithmatic expressions.

Running a program through Cardinal is currently an order of magnitude 
slower than using Ruby.
