ktcc

A C Compiler written in Multiplatform Kotlin (JVM, JS and Native).

Actions Status

Online live editor (Video)

It aims to generate Kotlin and potentially other targets from ANSI C code.

Use cases:

  • Compile C libraries into multiplatform Kotlin projects (that works on the JVM, JS and Native)
  • Convert C libraries into logical Kotlin code that can be modified

Using:

  • Provided as JVM library and CLI tool.
  • Provided as native executable (linux, mac and windows).
  • Provided as docker image with the compiler native executable. Just run latest uploaded version with: docker run --rm "-v$PWD:/data" soywiz/ktcc $*
  • Provided as JavaScript library and pure client-side online service. It autocompletes and generates Kotlin code on the fly on your browser.

CLI usage:

./gradlew fatJar
java -jar build/libs/ktcc-all.jar samples/simple.c      # outputs the kotlin code

Compile the c compiler with kotlin-native as a executable without dependencies:

./gradlew linkRelease
./build/bin/macosX64/main/release/executable/ktcc.kexe samples/simple.c

Cross-compile the compiler native executable for windows or linux in a mac machine (requires docker):

./gradlew_linux linkReleaseExecutableLinuxX64 # linux
./gradlew_win linkReleaseExecutableMingwX64   # windows

Compile the docker image:

./build_docker_image.sh

Example:

./ktcc_jvm samples/mp3dec.c --subtarget=jvm --runtime -o samples/mp3dec.kt
kotlinc samples/mp3dec.kt -include-runtime -d samples/mp3dec.jar
java -jar samples/mp3dec.jar samples/mp31.mp3 samples/mp32.mp3.out.pcm

Ideas

Handling structs with inline classes

While keeping the code using structures sane.

fun alloca(size: Int): CPointer<Unit> = CPointer<Unit>((STACK_PTR - size).also { STACK_PTR -= size })

inline fun <T> stackFrame(callback: () -> T): T {
    val oldPos = STACK_PTR
    return try { callback() } finally { STACK_PTR = oldPos }
}

inline class MyStruct2(val ptr: Int) {
    companion object {
        val SIZEOF = 4
        val OFFSET_a = 0
    }
    var a: Int get() = lw(ptr + OFFSET_a); set(value) = run { sw(ptr + OFFSET_a, value) }
}

inline class MyStruct(val ptr: Int) {
    companion object {
        val SIZEOF = 12
        val OFFSET_a = 0
        val OFFSET_b = 4
        val OFFSET_c = 8
    }
    var a: Int get() = lw(ptr + OFFSET_a); set(value) = run { sw(ptr + OFFSET_a, value) }
    var b: MyStruct2 get() = MyStruct2(lw(ptr + OFFSET_b)); set(value) = run { sw(ptr + OFFSET_b, value.ptr) } // Pointer to MyStruct2
    val c: MyStruct2 get() = MyStruct2(ptr + OFFSET_c); set(value) = run { /* memcpy */ }
}

/////////////

fun test() = stackFrame {
    val ms = MyStruct(alloca(MyStruct.SIZEOF)) 
    ms.b = MyStruct2(10)
    ms.b.a = 10
}
