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
which appears to be a more complicated language than C++, and it
to do such bootstraps.
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
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.
