- Subject: gcc-in-cxx branch created
As I promised at the summit today, I have created the branch
gcc-in-cxx (I originally said gcc-in-c++, but I decided that it was
better to avoid possible meta-characters). The goal of this branch is
to develop a version of gcc which is compiled with C++. Here are my
presentation slides in PDF format: http://airs.com/ian/cxx-slides.pdf .
I have not yet committed any patches to the branch--at present it is
just a copy of the trunk. I will start committing patches soon, and
anybody else may submit patches as well. The branch will follow the
usual gcc maintainership rules, except that any non-algorithmic
maintainer may additionally approve or commit patches which permit
compilation with C++.
I have committed the appended patch to htdocs/svn.html.
