#251 closed defect (fixed)

bootstrap docs nonexistent

Description

Now that the bootstrap target has been removed (?), instructions for bootstrapping need to be fixed to explain how to bootstrap. Apparently this is as simple as invoking make in a release tarball. But the docs don't explain this nor do they say what the new bootstrap compiler will be called. Also, I would like to know if it is possible to only perform the bootstrap step (as opposed to full build).

If by "bootstrap step" you mean to build the bootstrap compiler, see

scripts/build-boot-chicken.sh

I added a boot-chicken make target and a bootstrapping-specific section to the README in a976778b50688c58ac6a43faf83be8c54492a796 (exp.). If there still is anything missing, please reopen the ticket.
