Indeed. I seriously doubt the risk in this field would come from the
quality of the compiler (especially if not evaluated alone but in a
Also IIRC Cameau has good reputation and if someone considers C good
for the purpose compiler-wise, they can create the mix.
As I visualise the risks, the code generator/optimizer seem to be the
tricky part -- things messed up at the C++ level would either make the
code not compile, or to obvious errors (or rather theoretical ones).
While the code generator is likely shared.
And if you use a "runtime env" like for java, that in itself is more
risk than anything, isn't it?
