    Default JIT Compiler Support Might Be Added To GCC 4.9

    Phoronix: JIT Compiler Support Might Be Added To GCC 4.9

    The recently announced just-in-time (JIT) compiler library using the GNU Compiler Collection might be added to the major GCC 4.9 release in 2014...

    Very interesting, one question though, would one be able to compile an entire program to bytecode, and make it architecture independant (similar to Java)? Assuming of course, that the code itself was designed to run on multiple architectures.

    Maybe then everyone would have to have all the libraries and developer libraries installed.
    So even if it worked, it sounds like it would be hugely impractical.

    Yes, or one would also have to supply the bytecode-compiled libraries alongside the program (or statically linked into your bytecode program (and jitted at runtime as well)?).

    Bytecode-compiled applications should work with native libraries.

    What about Parrot?

    @Michael:
    s/With LLVM has long supported JIT compilation, this is a first for GCC./While LLVM has long supported JIT compilation, this is a first for GCC./
