Can you explain what you mean? Compile *what* to byte code? Not the PicoLisp
binary, right?

Note that normal PicoLisp doesn't compile anything. It "compiles" to structures
of pointers to pointers, where the compiler is called the "reader" in Lisp.

As you talk of libraries, you should look at miniPicoLisp. It "compiles" Lisp
source files to C structures, to be able to put them into ROM instead of
precious RAM at runtime. However, these are still not byte codes, but the good
old pointers to pointers :)
