I've been studying the Objective-C runtime for some years, and even hacked libobjc a little bit (both Apple's and GNUStep's), and I've been wondering about a design decision on the compilers. Every ...
This started out as a SO question but I realized that it is quite unconventional and based on the actual description on the websites, it might be better suited to programmers.se since the question has ...
I found that llvm could only generate assembly code. If someone want generate and link assembly code to native executable code, they should use external tool(GNU as/ld, for example. Currently lld is ...
As a C & Objective-C programmer, I'm a bit paranoid with the compiler warning flags. I usually try to find a complete list of warning flags for the compiler I use, and turn most of them on, unless ...

I have worked a little while with the Microsoft compiler from Visual C++ but I worked a long time with G++, and I remember often having bad times understanding what was wrong in my code with the ...
Is there any good reason (except "GCC is better") to use the MinGW win32api/headers/libs with LLVM/Clang. Suppose that in two to three years, Clang has matured enough (in C++0x and performance) that ...
Clang is able to be used instead of gcc? What your experience on that? What disadvantages there are yet? Performance of compilation is very better than gcc but about performance of code generated ...
