Is there a common language that FORTRAN, C, and PASCAL compilers
can reduce to for purposes of optimization. If not, is this

[Since Fortran, C, and Pascal are semantically nearly the same, it is quite
common to use a common intermediate language and code generator for all three.
For example, the Gnu C compiler now has a Fortran front end and would
presumably also have Pascal if someone cared enough to write one. -John]
