LLVM Alternatives

LLVM is described as 'compiler infrastructure designed for compile-time, link-time, run-time, and "idle-time" optimization of programs written in arbitrary programming languages. Originally implemented for C and C++, the language-agnostic design (and the success) of LLVM has since' and is an app in the development category. There are five alternatives to LLVM for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Mac, Windows, BSD and Cygwin. The best alternative is GNU Compiler Collection, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like LLVM are clang, Portable C Compiler, Open64 and Open Watcom.
