    Phoronix: New "Ranger" Infrastructure On Tap For The GCC 10 Compiler

    Ranger is the on-demand ranger generator being worked on for the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) by Red Hat's compiler experts for the past several years. Following a recent update on the effort, it looks like Ranger might land for next year's GCC 10 release after failing to make it in time for GCC 9...

      So some of the LLVM ideas might get carried over to LLVM

      Didn't you mean GCC ideas?

            What does IL mean in this context? Intermmediate Language? I thought IR (Intermmediate Representation) was the term used for this. Google turns up references to IL but no explanations.

              So compilation speed, not compiled code speed?

                That is how I read it. Faster operations for the compiler. Though that could eventually translate to more thorough and aggressive optimizations..

                  At least in LLVM it could be both. Lots of compilation of graphics shaders occurs at runtime. Presumably the AMDGPU backend for gcc could be similar.
