Re: Bridging the new C/C++ grok....() impedance mismatch
I'm inclined to agree with Joseph about the complexity of the problem.
My guesses are:
- Make the C++ frontend accept C99 (properly, including all the corner
cases): 1 man-year
- Make the C++ frontend accept all the C-like languages the C frontend
currently supports, including all the documented and undocumented
but essential extensions: 2-3 man-years
- Make the C++ frontend accept C99 and be as fast as the C frontend:
- All of the above at once: 6-9 man-years.
