Re: Using C++ in gcc (was Re: [RFC] type safe trees)


k, i'm a lawyer, and even i wouldn't lawyer someone to the degree that seems to be going on here.


So far your only point has been that bootstrapping to a virgin system
would be harder. (a) it's hard full stop (b) the ada compiler is in ada
which appears to be a more complicated language than C++, and it manages
to do such bootstraps.
n
And I might add, GDB doesn't even support Ada in the main tree right now, last i looked (5.x through 6.x), while it does support C++, so debugging
^
it isn't even easy for a normal person with the regular required tools, they have to go out and get a special version of gdb.
