I'm,on the side, following the process of the construction of a compiler
for Golang for microcontrollers, Tinygo.
They use the LLVM compiler toolchain. My question is, is this the right
way to create a new language.
Being inspire by this talk of Robert Greisemer
where he shows the resemblance (heritage) of Go with Oberon, I wondered
if LLVM is the right way to do it.
Griesemer is educated at ETHZ, see for instance his research work.
So I think using the compiler construction principles of Oberon would be
a better a way.
Especially when you consider that LLVM is not a "one man system" but a
"conference" - system
https://llvm.org/devmtg/2019-04/ that keeps a lot of good minds occupied
What are your thoughts?
