The user can call compiled functions in addition to a few built-in intrinsics, declare new data types and data objects, etc. Different input streams can be evaluated in parallel on alliant machines. Version 2 differs substantially in that the code fragments are read into an intermediate form before being evaluated, and can be stored in this form and then called from either user code or the interpreter. Version 2 also handles looping constructs (and the full C language), unlike version 1. ports: SunOS (cc or gcc), Alliant FX, SGI (partial), Cray YMP (partial) updated: 1993/07/18 language: C (ANSI), lcc intermediate format package: lcc version: 3.4b parts: compiler, test suite, documentation authors: Chris Fraser <cwf@research.att.com> Dave Hanson <drh@cs.princeton.edu> location: ftp://ftp.cs.princeton.edu/pub/lcc/* description: + hand coded C parser (faster than yacc) + retargetable + code "nearly as good as GCC" ports: x86, MIPS, SPARC status: small-scale production use discussion: email "subscribe lcc" to majordomo@cs.princeton.edu updated: 1995/02/01 language: C, lcc intermediate format package: Chop version: 0.6 parts: code generator author: Alan L.

The result is a highly fast C compiler with good code selection and no global optimization. Project Status: Chop compiles and runs a number of small test programs on the Vax. I'm currently updating the NS32k and 68K retargets for lcc compatibility. After I get them working, I'll work on getting the system to compile itself, get struct assignments working, improve the code quality and compile speed, and run the SPEC benchmarks.

Since the collector does not require pointers to be tagged, it does not attempt to ensure that all inaccessible storage is reclaimed. However, in our experience, it is typically more successful at reclaiming unused memory than most C programs using explicit deallocation. Unlike manually introduced leaks, the amount of unreclaimed memory typically stays bounded. ports: Sun-3, Sun-4 , Vax/BSD, Ultrix, i386/Unix, SGI, Alpha/OSF/1, Sequent (single threaded), Encore (single threaded), RS/600, HP-UX, Sony News, A/UX, Amiag, NeXT. updated: 1993/11/05 language: C package: dsp56k-gcc version: ? parts: compiler author: ? location: ftp://nic.funet.fi/pub/ham/dsp/dsp56k-tools/dsp56k-gcc.tar.Z Australia: ftp://evans.ee.adfa.oz.au/pub/micros/56k/g56k.tar.Z description: A port of gcc 1.37.1 to the Motorola DSP56000 done by Motorola contact: ? updated: ? language: C package: dsp56165-gcc version: ? parts: compiler author: Andrew Sterian <asterian@eecs.umich.edu> location: ftp://wuarchive.wustl.edu/usenet/alt.sources/? description: A port of gcc 1.40 to the Motorola DSP56156 and DSP56000. updated: ? language: C package: Harvest C version: 1.3 parts: compiler, assembler, linker. author: ? location: ftp://archive.umich.edu/mac/development/languages/harves* description: The parts of the system are all integrated in a unique application, which manages a "project" composed by several C source files and resource files (which contain data). ports: Macintosh contact: Eric W.

GNU E extends C++ with the notion of persistent data, program level data objects that can be transparently used across multiple executions of a program, or multiple programs, without explicit input and output operations. GNU E's form of persistence is based on extensions to the C++ type system to distinguish potentially persistent data objects from objects that are always memory resident. An object is made persistent either by its declaration (via a new "persistent" storage class qualifier) or by its method of allocation (via persistent dynamic allocation using a special overloading of the new operator). The underlying object storage system is the Exodus storage manager, which provides concurrency control and recovery in addition to storage for persistent data. restriction: GNU General Public License; not all runtime sources are available (yet) requires: release 2.1.1 of the Exodus storage manager contact: exodus@cs.wisc.edu updated: 1993/01/20 language: C (ANSI) package: ? 1984 ANSI C to K&R C preprocessor ? version: ? parts: translator(K&R C) author: ? location: from comp.sources.unix archive volume 1 description: ? status: ? updated: ? language: C (ANSI) package: unproto ? version: ? 4 ? 1.6 ? parts: translator(K&R C) author: Wietse Venema <wietse@wzv.win.tue.nl> location: ftp://ftp.win.tue.nl/pub/unix/unproto4.shar.Z description: ? contact: ? updated: ? language: C (ANSI) package: LCLint version: 1.4 parts: code analysis tool author: David E Evans <evs@larch.lcs.mit.edu> location: ftp://larch.lcs.mit.edu/pub/Larch/lclint/ description: LCLint is a lint-like tool for ANSI C.

More recently, James E.Hendrix has improved and extended the original Small-C compiler and published "The Small-C Handbook", ISBN 0-8359-7012-4 (1984). Both compilers produce 8080 assembly language, which is the most popular implementation of Small-C to-date. The 6502 Small-C compiler for the BBC Micro is based on "RatC", a version of the original Ron Cain compiler described by R.E.Berry and B.A.Meekings in "A Book on C", ISBN 0-333-36821-5 (1984). The 6502 compiler is written in Small-C and was bootstrapped using Zorland C on an Amstrad PC1512 under MSDOS 3.2, then transferred onto a BBC Micro using Kermit.

All components outside of the kernel are implemented as objects in MELDC itself and are modularized in the MELDC libraries. MELDC is reflective in three dimensions: structural, computational and architectural. The structural reflection indicates that classes and meta-classes are objects, which are written in MELDC. The computational reflection means that object behaviors can be computed and extended at runtime. The architectural reflection indicates that new features/properties (e.g., persistency and remoteness) can be constructed in MELDC. restriction: must sign license, cannot use for commercial purposes ports: Sun4/SunOS4.1 Mips/Ultrix4.2 contact: <MeldC@cs.columbia.edu> updated: 1992/12/15 language: uC++ package: uC++ version: 4.6 parts: translator (uC++ to C++), concurrency library, documentation, examples author: Peter A.

Sather has parameterized classes, object-oriented dispatch, statically-checked strong (contravariant) typing, separate implementation and type inheritance, multiple inheritance, garbage collection, iteration abstraction, higher-order routines and iters, exception handling, assertions, preconditions, postconditions, and class invariants.

It includes the extra built-in function COREHALFWORD. The following areas have been optimized: procedures calls when the argument and corresponding parameter are of the same type, and when the argument is a constant; constant subscripts; use of CORELHALFWORD and COREWORD; string constants of length one; iterative DO statements by transferring code to the end of the loop. String constants of length one do not require a descriptor, hence more descriptors are available for string variables. Comparison operations are treated as commutative, and an improved Commute algorithm is used. Halfword instructions are generated for BIT(16) variables. These areas have been improved or re-written: calls on OUTPUT, catenation, integer-to-string conversion, multiply, divide, and MOD. An emitter for SS-type instructions has been added. The compiler achieves an 11% reduction in object code compiling itself, an 11% increase in compilation rate, a 55% increase in compilation speed when the $E toggle is set. Special treatment for catenating a string to an integer substantially decreases consumption of the free string area, and decreases string moves. The latter improvement is most noticeable on small core machines. Core requirements: less than the improved XCOM on which it is based (approx. 98000 bytes). Symbol table size is 468. ports: IBM System 370 portability: The compiler is written in XPL.

CooL offers all the basic features of the object-oriented paradigm, such as (single) inheritance, dynamic binding and polymorphism. Above that, CooL offers generic object types and abstract object types and last but not least supports modules in the tradition of Modula, thus allowing to really build large systems. CooL is fully type-compliant with the C language type system and allows software written in C or in languages with a C interface to be integrated into CooL applications without any effort. CooL-SPE supports the development of application systems with graphical user interfaces based on X/Motif. These interfaces may be constructed using UIL or interactivly using a dialog editor. A dialog object class library, DIO, is available to facilitate integration of the application with the runtime system of X/Motif. This interface abstracts from the toolkit's primitives. The CooL language is extended by the CooL library system CoLibri. CoLibri offers a BCD type and a number of functions for the CooL simple types (e.g. STRING). As foundation object types, provides basic file I/O, time representation (including date, time, duration, interval etc.), and the basic container object types (e.g. set, list, sortedList, map and dictionary) as generic types. The SQL Object Interface (SOI) is provided to allow object-oriented applications to be integrated with a relational database system. This interface offers access to SQL tables via a generated object type interface. requires: INFORMIX ports: Linux, Solaris, Sinux 5.41 portability: nothing prevents using a different database backend status: new contact: CooL@sietec.de updated: 1994/10/25 language: Dynace package: Dynace version: 4.01 parts: translator(Dynace->C), library, documentation, examples author: Blake McBride <blake@edge.net> location: http://www.edge.net/algorithms description: Object Oriented extension to C similar to Objective-C only doesn't modify C syntax.

It converts whole programs at a time and because of this it can make a number of optimisations that would be very difficult to achieve with other techniques.

Release 2.0 introduces full source-level debugging of optimized code, adaptive optimization to shorten compile pauses, lightweight threads within Self, support for dynamically linking foreign functions, changing programs within Self, and the ability to run the experimental Self graphical browser under OpenWindows. Designed for expressive power and malleability, Self combines a pure, prototype-based object model with uniform access to state and behavior. Unlike other languages, Self allows objects to inherit state and to change their patterns of inheritance dynamically.
