My question is which language is the best front-end language for dsp

If your company should develope a dsp compiler from scratch, what
front-end language should you choose for your compiler? Most dsp
compiler uses C, but is that realy a good choice, why not use FORTRAN
thats made for numerical calculations?

Does anybody have any reading advice, is there any papers comparing
diffrent HLL for front-end dsp compilers?

  Thanx in advance
[I'd choose whatever language already has the most code you plan to
reuse. Also, remember that compilers with multiple front ends are
now common, and even lacking that, you can use f2c to turn
computational Fortran into C. -John]
