Re: Converting GCC to compilation with C++

More or less. That would be a possibility, but one that is only needed by people who have no C++ compiler and no GCC installed. With a C++ compiler you could compile Java even in stage1; and with GCC you could compile the C++ front-end in stage1, and use it to build Java in stage2 like it is now.

And of course *that* is true for GNAT as well, if you already have a binary GNAT installed, you can compile Ada in stage1, which is what we do all the time :-)
