Writing a C/C++ compiler in C++
I've been thinking of writing a C++ compiler in C++ over the next
several years, and I was wondering what's changed in writing a
I've been pouring over these groups and there seems to be a lot of
tools for starting but is the modern process still the same? As far as
I understand it you write a lexer that tokenizes all the symbols, then
write a parser that parses all of the tokens, then walks the parse
tree to generate the asm or IL that gets shoved to the backend.
So it seemed straightforward except that C++ isn't a LALR(1) grammer
that Bison or Byacc accepts. Does ...Could I compile "c" source with a C++ compiler (Forte C++ Update 2)?
Does Forte C++ Update 2 compiles C source code in ANSI C as same as

If you're asking whether "CC" will compile the same code as "cc",
then the answer is no.
This is true for ANY standard-compliant c++ compiler
(compilers with different "language mode" like gcc
don't count as a single compiler for this description).
However, usually one can make C code
"compilable" by C++ co...Better C/C++ Than C/C++?
I am looking for a good systems programming language
that can be used instead of C/C++. My qualifications
for the language are:
* mature compiler(s) that produce native-code
binaries (for Windows)
* open source - preferable, but not 100% necessary

How do I get C-c C-c to work with jython? I have the jpython command set to
jython, and I can start the interpreter with C-C ! and then use C-c C-c, but
this is rather frustrating. If I try to use C-c C-c without first starting
the interpreter in another window I get

No problem, just send $10 to email@example.com and I'll do your homework

I'm trying to include a C header file from an external library in my C+
+ program but when I compile I get the following error:
error: expected unqualified-id before 'private'
error: abstract declarator 'void*' used as declaration
error: expected ';' before 'private'
It didn't take me long to figure out that the offending C header file
uses a variable with the name "private". I've reproduced the problem

I recently installed DJGPP on my system. There was no
problem during the install. However I can compile C programs without
any problems but when I try to compile a C++ program I get a long
list of error messages and the file will not compile.
Can anyone suggest what the problem might

I've made a tool which compiles a C++-like language and produces good
old C99 (with some gcc extensions in certain cases). Maybe it can get
in the free-compilers list.
It is interesting because by studing the -readable- generated C code
you an understand how C++ features are implemented. It's also easy to
add new features and extensions.
The URL is:
It is only known to work on a gcc/gnu-libc system and it is
definitelly BETA. The parser is written entirely in C.

Exceptionally would need to build a prog. executable to run
in a 16bit environment (MS-DOS).
What a compiler (for experience), that of setting
options can generate executables in a 16bit not protected environment ?
That is a compiler that can be run under WinXP and genres
just a 16bit executable?
I think it is called a cross-compiler!
Obviously, free downloadable ...
Thanks in advance.

This isn't about C; this is about some editor. Why the fircone should
/we/ know? Ask in a relevant group.
[And /why/, in an editor specialised to some specific programming languages,

I've been asking on the net how to use MEX properly so that I can use
C/C++ in MATLAB, but information is not forthcoming.
There seems to be a lot on using MATLAB in C/C++ but not the other
way around. I understand Mathworks is trying very hard to sell the
Matlab Compiler, but even so, why is it SO hard to get information
Or is it that I've missed something very fundamental, meaning that
I'm struggling over something that is actually quite easy?
Any thoughts and info would be great.

Isn't it a lame use of human time and effort to maintain completely separate
C and C++ standards? As in the words of Betty White about Facebook: "It
seems like an incredible waste of time". Why don't the two standards groups
get together and agree on a common specification for the ground which both
standards cover? There would still be two separate standards, but they'd
both be exactly the same for the common ground. The common ground document
could be referred to by both standards instead of being maintained by both
groups in individual efforts resulting in...slime C-c C-c annoyance
Does anyone have a good workaround for this problem other than: just be careful!
When I've compiled a large package and slime has given me a *slime-compilation* buffer,
I like to work through this buffer issue by issue, fixing the errors, warnings, etc.
But If I ever press C-c C-c in the editor window while fixing an error, slime destroys the *(slime-compilation* buffer with the compilation output of C-c C-c.
