  • Re: Compiler implementation language preference ?
    Most of our compilers (including C compilers) are written in Pascal. There are two reasons. The strong type checking in the Pascal compiler I use is an important part of development productivity. The second reason is Pascal has features that make it well matched to the implementing a

  • Compiler implementation language preference ?
    Is there any preference to writing a compiler in say c instead of say java, fortran, basic etc? I ask cause i see many of the projects using either c or c++ instead of other programming languages. Sincerely, nullCompiler [Mostly people use what they're used to, or in languages that are easy
