As ECL can compiles List to C, a C compiler generating LLVM code may be used
(llvm-gcc or clang).
Juan Jose, Christian, how can you compare Lisp -> C -> LLVM with Lisp -> LLVM
solution to ECL?
My understantind (pure theoretical, I haven't tried any of that):
if ECL can generate LLVM directly, it is a simplification to user, less tools to chain.
But Lisp to LLVM required efforts to implement and will also take mainenance efforts.
Christian, have you compared these options, or you were just guided by interest
to learn/try your own Lisp -> LLVM implementation?
