If C were really a production ready systems language don't you think its compiler would be written in it


(GCC has been a mixed C/C++ codebase since 2010)

@hirojin I don't know the extent of the mixture but yeah

This is, to me, the funniest piece of modern trivia I've yet learned

@myrrlyn is there any modern, respectable C compiler, that's not written in C++?

@myrrlyn pretty sure Microsoft's and Intel's stuff is all in C++

@hirojin I can't find source info for ICC, I don't think TCC counts as modern, and I can't think of any others offhand
