What do you mean by C-only? Even though Google's "standard"
compiler generates C++ there is to-pure-C compiler . If you
are referring to the language used to implement the compiler
then this is not an option as the compiler is implemented in
When I took a glance at that it looked a little heavyweight, and I'm
not sure a C++ tool (in the `build.sh tools' sense) is appropriate.
But I only took a glance at it -- perhaps it would work out after all.
