Adobe Releases C/C++ To Flash Compiler

SnT2k writes “Adobe recently release the beta version of Alchemy which compiles C/C++ code into AS3 bytcode (which runs on AVM2) that can run on the Flash or Flex platform and boasts increased performance for computationally-intensive tasks (but still slower than native C/C++). It was demonstrated last year during the Chicago MAX 2007 to run Quake. A few months later it has been demonstrated to run a Python interpreter and Nintendo Emulator. One interesting tidbit is that the thing is built upon the open source LLVM Compiler Infrastructure.”

    The idea that you can port C into actionscript is pretty interesting. Should be cool to see what comes out of it. Cool site btw, you’ve got a lot of interesting articles linked up. I’m working on behalf of Cisco to promote a contest I think you may be interested in. Send me an email if you’d like more info.
