    I believe Tsodings - Porth is a single pass compiler. Currently in development - it has some great vlogs and is also self hosting. He's recently said that re-implementing Porth straight up has become an issue for him - so please just take inspiration only. I suspect a concatenative language is quite a natural fit for a single pass compiler.
