China Makes A Java Version Of Core LLVM
Phoronix: China Makes A Java Version Of Core LLVM
Developers at a university in China have developed their own Java version of LLVM. Their reasoning for re-implementing LLVM is that they prefer Java to the C++ language...
We used ANTLR in my college compiler class as well
It sounds like a cool student project, even if no one is really going to use it. The point is to learn about how compilers work.
True no harm done, but damn what a waste of talent.
Seriously these guys could have put that talent to work on another tool for LLVM, work on another compiler interface or whatever. Instead they target a funky language like Java.
