Comeau C++

Comeau C++ front end pre-release is a command line driven C++ compiler that generates C as its object code. Note closely that this is not preprocessing, but compiling. The Comeau 4.0 front-end first does full "C-style" preprocessing, as usual. From that translation unit, the Comeau 4.0 front-end compiler proper then does full syntax, semantic and error checking. The input C++ program is translated into a machine independent intermediate language (IL). For its code generation phase, Comeau 4.0 only considers the intermediate form (IF). It processes the IF and then translates it into C language source code. Note then that a C compiler is needed only for machine dependent native object code generation.
