GCC to Clang

Forum thread started by andrewclunn on Fri, 2012-11-09 16:27

Well FreeBSD just bit the bullet and moved from GCC to Clang. Now I know there are licensing reasons for this. And I also know that this really isn't a factor for Haiku until we start talking R2, but is there any limitation within Clang (likely related to c++ support) that needs to be addressed for Haiku to even consider switching?


Re: GCC to Clang

IIRC Haiku makes use of some compiler extensions which aren't supported under Clang/LLVM, I don't know how hard it would be to remove them and replace them
