Do you know – what is Cfront?

6 04 2008

Cfront was the first compiler writter for C++. Actually it converts C++ programs to C. It’s developed by the creator himself – Bjarne Stroustrup.

There were versions from 1.0 to 4.0. But Cfront 4.0 failed to implement exception handling and thus came to an end. But you can still get cfront from the shelves of SoftwarePreservation group – a museum of classic softwares. Here is the link.

Thanks Wiki for the history.
