  • Targetting C
    3 projects | | 21 Jan 2023
    Hi! We have been translating Elixir to C (which we translate to eBPF) in HoneyPotion. We used mostly Chapter 15 of Appel's Modern Compiler Implementation in Java to implement the code generator (that's "15. Functional Programming Languages"). I think the choice of C has been good thus far. The implementation of Elixir's pattern matching took much work, but if we had chosen a higher level target, we would still have to translate that to eBPF. Here's the entry point for the translator.
  • Suggestion for a backend?

    We have been working on a tool that translates Elixir to eBPF. We actually translate eBPF to C. Now that we have more stuff working, I really wonder if generating C was a good choice.
  • Intersection of PLs with the OS

    That's exactly what Honey Potion does, when we translate Elixir into Linux' eBPF!
