Hummm yes you can. Remeber back in the EARLY 90's it was done. There was the BASM. Basic to Asm compiler. (There is BASM, a BASIC compiler which is written in PowerBASIC and produces (286) assembler code... )

Figure this out, XBASIC is written written in XBASIC( http://xbasic.sourceforge.net/)

FAQ - XBasic history
What language is XBasic written in?
XBasic is written entirely in XBasic, except for 400KB of assembly language - most of that is comments. XBasic does not call any functions in any C function library. XBasic is self-contained - the only functions XBasic calls are operating-system API functions. Linux XBasic implements all its graphics and message processing by calling functions in the low-level XWindows xlib function library.

Is that the one with the luggage look with a green 2" screen ? (ok maybe alittle bigger then 2") used to use one of those back when I was working in the mainframe room of Pricewater.
Now you want to see one big ass computer should have seen the system Pricewater house had, 2 A/C running full time 24hr/s 365 days ayr. AND water cooled CPU. The room was about 75x75 feet. The drives(if you want to call them that) took 2 people to pull up the disks, they were a good 2.5ft wide. And when those things started to go, sounded like a chainsaw. Then about 1yr later we replaced the system with 2 fridge sized systems.(Don't remeber the specs)
