Hi List,
Was just wondering if anyone had tried compiling ECL with LLVM...
The latest release of LLVM looks relatively complete as far as C compilation
goes and compiling to the LLVM style assembler looks to provide lots of
opportunities for translating to strange environments like JavaScript.
I was thinking primarily of things like http://emscripten.org which allow
running C apps in Javascript. They've "ported" Doom to javascript, it works
fairly well on a modern browser on a fast machine.
One of the emscripten demos is running Lua in a page in javascript translated
from C. There are also some nice GL demos (via WebGL). I thought it might be
interesting to have ECL running in a page on a web browser. Even as a 
teaching tool it would be interesting.
