Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-262) Native Runners | Direct Compiler
Date Mon, 09 May 2016 07:51:12 GMT


Suminda Dharmasena commented on BEAM-262:

If you generate the backend there is:

 - zero overhead of running the framework
 - extreme optimisation for the particular scenario to minimise CPU, Power, Memory usage improving
throughput and latency which are not possible when running on top of a framework
 - zero mismatch of functionality of generated code and Bean features

> Having to depend on other frameworks to do the heavy lifting means that the quakes, limitation
and overhead of the other platform limits what can be achieved. Hence is it possible to have
Beam directly generate code for LLVM, JVM and .Net platforms without dependence on any other
> Also perhaps there can be code generation than directly native code in high level languages
like C/C++, Java, C#, F#, Rust, Julia, D, Nim, etc.
