bircc is an ANSI C compiler under development written in plain C. It has the explicit goal of being reusable in other projects.
Easy to reuse, provide bircc.h interface and libbircc library.
The best possible C programming experience. Be as helpful as possible to the C programmer.
First focus on Linux platform, but make it cross-platform by default. No need to compile a cross-compiler, the compiler can compile to binaries for any supported platform with a simple switch or environment option.
Trigraphs. Ho hum.
Bircc requires the CLAD library at http://github.com/bjorndm/clad. Compile and install that first.
Bircc uses cmake build system for now, until it becomes self-hosting. So just say cmake ; make
