Re: Stupid conflicting name
'xlang' - it's maybe supposed to be similar in appearance to 'clang'?
that was my first guess, anyway. I also face-palmed at the *OBVIOUS* 'Embrace Extend Extinguish *EX-TER-MIN-ATE*" coming down the pike behind it.
/me uses clang with FreeBSD. I find it a little refreshing compared to gcc, particularly in the way it deals with cross-compilation, and of course, no GPLv3-related licensing problems. It also has some more interesting warning generation that occasionally spots things that gcc misses.
