Oh man, am I looking forward to this series! Especially the LSP portion. Do you plan to hand-write the parser?

I do plan on hand-writing the parser, as for the kind of error-tolerance, you want in an IDE environment, there's no real great modern parser generator.

That's the big reason for implementing such a simple language as Tiny-C: it's simple enough to do everything by hand and understand how everything works.
