Hello developers of gcc and all,
only recently I've found that RTL - an intermediate front end output
is a Lisp-like language :-)
My main questions are:
Q1. were there any efforts on adding Scheme or CommonLisp to a GCC's
front ends family?
Q2. Is RTL/Tree suitable for functional languages?
Q2.1. Is RTL/Tree suitable for tail recursion optimizations?
Q2.2. Is RTL/Tree suitable for run-time usage?
Q2.3. Is RTL/Tree suitable for having function as a return value?
Q3. Are there any group of gurus in area able and motivated to add
Scheme (or even CommonLisp) to GCC family? (if any, we could
create at least a page at http://www.cliki.net and collect all
related info there needed for very beginning)
My motivation is to have a good Scheme and CommonLisp
implementations. "Good" means in particular "with run-time
compilation to an effective native code". As effective as gcc is.
CMUCL and SBCL implementation of CommonLisp can do a lot but they
have problems with portability issue (e.g. they are not ported to
win32 still). It would be just perfect if a power of
portability of GCC's family of languages could be also obtained for
a Lisp family. I collect info on this issue here:
