TinyCC is not an interpreter, it compiles in memory then executes the code
so fast that its looks to act as an interpreter. It supports shebang which
is damn cool to have shell scripts written in C for example.
Again, we'll have to probably adapt the code to Silicon which no longer
allows to make pages writable and executable. Few extra operations are
AFAIK, TinyCC has no specific debugger.

It's good that you mention TinyCC. AFAIU, it contains a C interpreter.
Would it be possible to extend it, to contain a C interpreter and debugger?
This would make it possible to do debugging on platforms where 'ptrace'
is not available to normal users, due to "security" considerations .
