    Phoronix: LLVM Is At Nearly 2.5 Million Lines Of Code

    The LLVM compiler infrastructure made immense progress in 2013 and saw lots of adoption in new areas, improvements to many of the back-ends, and various other new features. Here's a look at LLVM's accomplishments in 2013...

    Looks like it's becoming more and more bloated like the binaries it produces.

    GCC devs would never let this happen to GCC. The code will be small but still versatile.

      Your joking right? You must be some troll. GCC, not including comments and whitespace, is ~6.4 million lines of code. llvm is at ~1.26 million and clang is another 822 thousand. GCC is anything but "small". GNU tools are infamous for bloat. See glibc comapred to musl, μclibc, diet libc and even BSD's libc.

        With stats like this it is hard to deny LLVM's rapid adoption and overall success!

        This is really a magnificent accomplishment and demonstrates the positive impact of corporations and people in general working together on basic technologies.

          Really, is the fact that LLVM/CLANG has been very successful really hurting the GNU/GCC crowd that bad that you have to post crap like this? You blew any credibility you may have out of the water.

            Clearly a lie. Everyone knows that without GPL licensing no corporation would ever contribute to a project. It's a plain fact, just like 2013 having been the Year of Linux Gaming.

                Nope. Very few people on earth are going to view them more favourably if they help open source projects. They do it for their own interests, to get changes they want. Which is fine, they aren't a charity.

                    But they only to this to take your code I way! I mean the code they gave you but then take it back! I mean they are using the code they wrote without the explicit consent off the whole Linux Community!

                    And they earn money for stuff they sell!
