why c++?

Hi,

sorry, just hit the enter key by accident.
Anyway, why was llvm was written in c++?

c and python, c and ocaml, c and java i would more prefer.

I am not a flamethrower(sorry again if it was.) Just another newbie.

TIA

If you want to write a new compiler, you're free to do it in a language of your choice. LLVM is written primarily in C++, for a variety of reasons, and we don't plan to change that soon. This list is not the appropriate place to discuss the virtues of one language over another.

Hi,

Please give me one reason,
Btw, emacs is fine with lisp, c and eclipse is fine with Java.
That was interesting fact to me.
