General Development The LLVM Project recently released a new version of their compiler, optimizer and code generators. LLVM includes a drop-in GCC-compatible C/C++ and ObjC compiler, mature optimization technology (including cross file/whole program optimization), and a highly optimizing code generator. For people who enjoy hacking on compilers and runtimes, LLVM provides libraries for implementing custom optimizers and code generators including JIT compiler support. This release is the first to provide beta GCC 4.2 compatibility as well as the new "clang" C/ObjC front-end, which provides capabilities to build source-to-source translators and many other tools.

If you want to play some elitist Distro rubbish with me you have picked the wrong person. Go away.

Don't you think you are overreacting a bit to bluenosejake's very reasonable correction to your claim? Especially since he is verifiably correct. There is nothing elitist about making a factual correction regarding an erroneous claim that was central to your post.

I will repeat myself I have begged pleaded. Leave me alone. I *never* understood the reasoning for your relentless attacks on the FSF and Richard Stallman. Now I am experiencing them first hand I know your reasons well enough.

This low level intimidation needs to stop.

Cyclops,

I can't believe I am having to say this again. But there is no intimidation campaign going on. I've explained that to you many times before. Please relax and stop being so paranoid. Besides, this is a news site and message board. How in the nine worlds could I intimidate you here, low level or otherwise? Throw deadly words at you?
