Tool to compile and run C programs like a shell script
Tool to compile and run C programs like a shell script.
First of all, this is not the same as tcc. TCC is a compiler. TCC will preform its own set of optimizations, just as GCC will preform its own and Clang will preform its own. The purpose of this script is to give a simple front-end to a compiler.
Whether it’s GCC, Clang, or something else entirely, one can get to choose their compiler. It’s simply satisfying to type c hello.c and see it run instantly.
C is fast. Being able to write a small, fast, and portable C “script” is great. One can pass around a C “script” just like s/he would a BASH script.
