    Phoronix: Clang Now Supports Targeting The NaCl OS

    Added to the latest LLVM Clang compiler code is driver support for Google's Native Client SDK...

    NaCL is a sandbox, not an operating system

    NaCL is a sandbox, not an operating system (OS). Please fix the title, if possible.

      I'm well aware, but per the commit, "Add Tool and ToolChain support for clang to target the NaCl OS using the NaCl SDK for x86-32, x86-64 and ARM."

      They mention it as "NaCl OS" so I'm not sure the technicalities involved if Google refers to the sandboxed environment as NaCl OS or what, but I titled it after that commit.

        Fine then, if they call it like that. As far as I was studying it two years ago (or so), it was called sandbox for native code execution, see the scientific paper describing NaCL ("http://cacm.acm.org/magazines/2010/1/55768-native-client-a-sandbox-for-portable-untrusted-x86-native-code/abstract")

          It was called a sandbox the last time I checked it ("http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1629175.1629203"). But if they changed their mind, then fine :-)

            Could it be the compilation target on the Clang side is called an 'OS' ?

            Thus this would also be called the NaCl OS.
