interesting page layout ;-)

The page layout is somewhat trippy, to be honest. I rather like it.

Uugh, I hate page layouts like that. They trigger my vertigo something fierce. :(

I'm not entirely sure which WTF you mean.. that someone would seek to use PHP for natively compiled binaries on a Win32 platform, or that someone would put together a Snoop Dog montage advertising such a tool.

The correct answer is "Yes." :)

Ah, I'm on the text client. Is that the one? If so, someone is a little obsessed with Snoop Dog.

Ah, it seems we can get Snoop to recommend almost anything.

interesting read. Intermediate language so you can efficiently generate machine code portably.

Till the last sentence, who's the sponsor of this; The company known for the portability of its OS-Products over bazillions of processor & hardware architectures:

It's called "C-" because that's the grade its author received in a compiler design class.

That having been said, what's the difference between this and any other bytecode?
These sound like features that are already available in the Java virtual machine or in the .Net allegedly-portable runtime.

Java is a pretty high-level bytecode, not suitable as a "common intermediate langauge" for compilers. LLVM is better suited for that role.

.NET, I think, is somewhere in the middle of those two. I believe it assumes GC? That is not true of LLVM.

Interesting, but it is one perspective out of many. It's true that those of us who were kids/teens in the early 1980's got to experience that magic time when computers were landing in homes for the first time, and it did launch a lot of careers.

Just as many careers were launched during the boom years of the 1990's when quite a lot of people just looked through the want ads to see what paid well, and went ahead and learned to code because it was in demand at the time. (Many of these people left the industry after the crash -- and good riddance to them.)

But back in the 8-bit days, anyone who had a computer did learn a bit of BASIC sooner or later.

Young folks who take up programming don't seem to grasp certain things about the computer that we seem to understand.

At least, it seems like that from the few I've met.

I don't know if it's because they never had to suffer through the command line interface, or just farted around with the old technology enough to understand how truly stupid a computer is. Just something... missing.

I find they sometimes have unrealistic expectations from the machine. Which, perversely, is useful when creating a GUI, since you just program to those expectations, but not as good if you're trying to understand why the machine isn't doing what you want.
