I8C is a compiler for Infinity notes. It compiles I8 source to object code that can then be linked into executables or shared libraries in the usual way.

Proper documentation is coming soon, but for now see i8c --help:

Usage: i8c [OPTION]... [FILE]...

Infinity Note Compiler.

  --help     Display this information.
  --version  Display version information.
  -E         Preprocess only; do not compile, assemble or link.
  -S         Compile only; do not assemble or link.
  -c         Compile and assemble, but do not link.
             Do not preprocess.
  -o FILE    Place the output into FILE.

Note that I8C uses GCC both to preprocess its input (unless invoked
with ‘-fpreprocessed’) and to assemble its output (unless invoked with
‘-E’ or ‘-S’).  If GCC is used, all options not explicitly listed
above will be passed to GCC unmodified.

In general I8C operates like GCC, so if you’re used to GCC then I8C
should make sense.  Try it!

In most cases the command you want is ‘i8c -c file.i8’, which reads
and compiles ‘file.i8’ and writes the result to ‘file.o’.
