    With GCC 10+ the LibGCCJIT frontend has been available as a stub for compiler parsers that would allow GCC's optimizer and code generator to be encapsulated in a shared library for various reasons not limited to JIT compilation despite the name.

    If I were to make a shared library version of GCC, would any other compiler makers use it other than me? My use case would be modularizing EEC (a fork of ECX, the E compiler).

    The responses I got were underwhelming from most dirctions. Maybe I should let it rest where it is. EEC has many issues and few users and even fewer devs.

    If anybody wants to join the team they should message the discussion board on GitHub at https://github.com/EEC-Developers to get in touch.

    The reason I was asking about a shared implementation of LibGCCJIT was to find out if developers of other languages were interested in sharing the load.
