  • rust

    Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

  • I'm not sure I'd call the design "bad". At the very least it's a product of the design constraints, and I'm not sure there's an obviously better implementation without sacrificing something else. I think separate compilation and monomorphization are the biggest contributors, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was something I was forgetting.

    Somewhat related, there was some work in Rust about sharing monomorphized generics across crates, but it appears it was not a universal win at the time[0]. I'm not sure if anything has changed since that point, unfortunately, or if something similar could be applied to C++ somehow.

  • cppfront

    A personal experimental C++ Syntax 2 -> Syntax 1 compiler

  • C++ has major flaws that cannot be rectified without serious breaking changes. With that said, Herb has been experimenting with a new cpp frontend with sane defaults [1].

    In my opinion, the world is on standby until Anders Hejlsberg feels like tackling a modern, next generation systems language.
