- You can start a wiki about programming languages without the constraints of the Wikipedia inclusion criteria at Wikia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:19, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
If a compiler outputs code that cannot be understood by the CPU hardware but can be understood by another compiler which does produce code appropriate for a CPU, then the compiler a transcompiler. Vala compiles to C and there are C compilers that produce machine code. Therefore, Vala is implemented as a transcompiler. Of course, you could write a proper compiler for Vala, as well. As for a reference, look at Vala's website. Cogiati (talk) 17:24, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
- Yes there are many intermediate steps before you get machine code. But if you eventually get machine code, somehow, then it can be called a compiler. If the compiler's intermediate language is not made to be read by humans, then it's not a transcompiler. valac outputs C, so you can take the C code and do whatever you want with it, even continuing development on C, or distributing the project as a C project. Therefore, valac is a transcompiler. Cogiati (talk) 17:58, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
- No, it doesn't preserve comments and the generated C code is supposed to be thrown away after compilation (you can save it with valac --save-temps). This doesn't mean you can't use it or modify it, it just needs some patience, but it's possible. Whether you can call valac a transpiler or not depends on the definition of code readability and the definition of a transpiler. One definition is that a compiler compiles into lower-level code, while a transpiler compiles into code of the same level as the source code. Vala (C#) is a bit higher-level than C but not much higher, they are mostly the same. Cogiati (talk) 00:57, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
- So, do you want to propose to remove the reference to transcompilation from Vala (programming language)? There's no need for a transpiler to generate good-looking code for it to be called a transpiler. Source-to-source compilers are transpilers and the two articles should be merged. Cogiati (talk) 06:39, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
- Good references seem hard to find. The terms are in common use in the academia, the industry, and the free software community, though. C would be considered high level in the past, so if you see it as low level it is only because other higher-level languages have been appeared since its introduction. So, is mentioning transpilers in the compiler article and proposing the deletion of the two articles what you want to do? Cogiati (talk) 01:59, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
In answer to your question, since about the 1920s/1930s for some reforms, and then after the second world war for all of them. You might find this article interesting - Women's suffrage in the United Kingdom
Hi. When you recently edited Otto Fried, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Fried (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Thank you for this. The original issue came up at wp:RX#Article by Eysenck in Deutsche National Zeitung. Perhaps you might comment there? LeadSongDog come howl! 22:02, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
