FeatureC++ is a C++ language extension that supports Feature-Oriented Programming (FOP). FOP studies feature modularity in program families. The idea of FOP is to build software by composing features. Features are basic building blocks that satisfy intuitive user-formulated requirements on the software system. Features refine other features incrementally. This step-wise refinement leads to a layered stack of features. Mixin Layers are one appropriate technique for implementing features.
The GNU Modula-2 compiler is one of a number of front end languages to GCC (the GNU Compiler Collection). As such, it has been designed to coexist with other GCC languages. For example, it can be used in mixed language projects and it can catch C++ exceptions and throw exceptions which can be caught by C++. Users can also exploit conditional compilation and full gcc backend optimization and architecture coverage. GNU Modula-2 can produce position independent code and can easily produce shared libraries from modules. The compiler provides a swig interface file generator option, which allows scripting languages such as Python to import modules written in Modula-2 and also catch exceptions thrown by Modula-2. The compiler translates PIM2, PIM3, PIM4, and ISO dialects of Modula-2.
HGL is a compiler/interpreter suite for developing images. It features its own simple but powerful language, Lua integration, output in various formats as well as runtime input handled by plugins, and easy integration into various environments like Web servers or graphical applications. The input is taken from a source file, which has to be compiled for quick and frequent access by the interpreter. An interpreter then runs the compiled files, takes input from custom plugins (if neccessary), and outputs its result via custom plugins.
Java Grinder takes Java byte-code from a class file and compiles it into an assembly code text file that can be assembled and run on microcontrollers and CPUs including MSP430, dsPIC, 6502 (Commodore 64), 68000, ARM, and MIPS. A Java API is provided for dealing with SPI, GPIO, Commodore 64 hardware, and more.
Liberty Eiffel is a compiler for the Eiffel programming language. It continues the development of SmartEiffel, the GNU Eiffel Compiler. It is a complete, small, and fast Eiffel compiler, including an Eiffel to C compiler, documentation tools, a pretty printer, a debugger, and various other tools. It also includes a large library of classes distributed under the terms of the MIT/X Consortium License and a comprehensive set of wrappers/bindings for widespread free software libraries. Eiffel is an advanced object-oriented programming language that emphasizes the design and construction of high-quality and reusable software.
Metacza is a language and its compiler which produces output in the C++ Meta Template Language. Its concise syntax makes Meta Template Programming much easier. Metacza allows you to write programs using boost::mpl, and to produce C++ header files that can be used on their own. Programming without boost::mpl is also supported. Metacza is a higher order language with closures, let, and lambda.
