Mmmm, article goodness
Looks like the article on writing a compiler that targets Parrot has hit OnLamp. Probably worth taking a look.

Sorry I didn't catch this earlier, but I've found at least one bug (or limitation) in the example compiler. :)
If you try something like
print 1 + 1
Then the generated code won't work.
For a quick workaround, do something like:
push @tokens, "\$P$dest = $val\n";
push @tokens, "\$P$dest = \$P$dest $oper $other_val\n";
Instead of just:
push @tokens, "\$P$dest = $val $oper $other_val\n";
