BitC Download Page

The first BitC compiler is converging rapidly, but it isn't complete yet. We have a few remaining items in the to-do list to complete. If you are interested in experimenting, or you want to help us debug the language, it's far enough along to download and write programs in. You can also browse the code for the compiler or the runtime library on-line if you like.

The easiest way to obtain the BitC source is to copy it using rsync:

rsync -avz rsync://www.bitc-lang.org/src.bitc/ bitc/

You can also obtain it using mercurial:

hg clone http://dev.eros-os.com/hg/bitc

Whichever way you fetch it, you then need to:

cd bitc/src
# Set CXXFLAGS so that you can help us debug the compiler:
CXXFLAGS=-g ./configure
make

If you are trying to track the development updates as we go, it's always a good idea to run:

cd bitc/src
# Set CXXFLAGS so that you can help us debug the compiler:
CXXFLAGS=-g ./configure
make clean
make

Because we are still making changes to makefiles that are generated using configure.

When releases and/or source are available for download, an item will appear in the News pane.
