  • GitHub repo shaderc

    A collection of tools, libraries, and tests for Vulkan shader compilation.

    Project mention: mpv symbol look up error | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 2021-12-05

    This was reported as bugs already, status remain undecided. ``` shaderc``` package have been flagged out of date already as the upstream has released tag 2021.3 while it's still on 2021.2 in extra repository. Is this the cause of error?

  • GitHub repo constexpr-8cc

    Is C enough? https://github.com/keiichiw/constexpr-8cc

  • GitHub repo dynarmic

    An ARM dynamic recompiler.

    Project mention: Ryujinx - Progress Report July 2021 | reddit.com/r/emulation | 2021-08-11

    I did some work on Dynarmic, so there's my bias I guess. But I def believe Dynarmic would emit better context-aware assembly than a CIL->Native jitteror the JVM would emit. Dynarmic takes advantage of instruction sets like BMI2 and AVX{2,512} and uses a pretty darn concise intermediate representation to the original ARM assembly to emit efficient x86 while a C# JIT probably still only emits baseline x86-64 and struggles with efficient vectorization of things like Arm's NEON instructions. Can't even imagine a C# or Java VM trying to automatically emit optimal assembly for an FMADD including handling NaN propagation or detecting that FMINNM can be very quickly emulated with a single vrangep{s,d} x86 instruction.

  • GitHub repo seq

    A high-performance, Pythonic language for bioinformatics

    Project mention: C with Deep Learning | reddit.com/r/C_Programming | 2021-06-03

  • GitHub repo slang

    git clone https://github.com/ELENA-LANG/elena-lang.git

  • GitHub repo Feral

    Feral programming language reference implementation

    Project mention: What instructions are needed for a language vm | reddit.com/r/Compilers | 2021-10-15

    I have been working on my own VM (and language) as well and I decided to have only a small set of instructions that I wanted. I finalized on ~25 instructions. You can check them out here - https://github.com/Feral-Lang/Feral/blob/master/include/VM/OpCodes.hpp

  • GitHub repo Cwerg

    A light-weight compiler backend

    Project mention: Picking atomic instruction primitives for a compiler backend | reddit.com/r/Compilers | 2022-01-14

    Sorry, I should have been more clear: The Cwerg IR is a RISC like virtual instructution set. I am trying to enrich it with atomic operations so that inline assembly can be avoided as much as possible. Keeping the size of the IR small is a higher priority than performance of the generated code.

  • GitHub repo delta

    C* is a hybrid low-level/high-level systems programming language focused on performance and productivity. (by delta-lang)

    Project mention: April 2021 monthly "What are you working on?" thread | reddit.com/r/ProgrammingLanguages | 2021-04-01

    I started writing a scripting language using Delta, a systems programming language I'm working on. This was helpful to get some real-world use testing, and squash some compiler bugs.
