I, and another programmer are endeavoring to create a language most
similar to c++, with in-language support for constraints on parametric
polymorphism, well-integrated preprocessing features, anonymous lambda
functions, and typesafe functions with arbitrary arguments (i.e typesafe
printf), amongst other things. We are using a c++ library called Spirit
(http://spirit.sourceforge.net) for our lexer/parser/AST generation.
My question is, if you were involved in this project, what would you
generate from the AST? We don't want to target a particular assembly
language because it is not portable. Would you recommend compiling down
to another language such as c or c++. Or what about targeting a virtual
machine (java, .net)? Are there other options we should consider?
Thanks in advance.
