what about pir? -- (talk) 16:24, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. I added Parrot intermediate representation to the article. -- (talk) 01:48, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Intermediate representation -- Intermediate language merge proposal[edit]

I propose to merge the article intermediate representation into intermediate language. To me, the articles read as such that an intermediate representation is an element from the set defined by a grammar which defines an intermediate language. It would therefore make sense to discuss both concepts in one article. --Abdull (talk) 16:18, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

I think it is opposite. Intermediate representation may become arbitrary graph structure. That is not a language.--MetaNest (talk) 07:34, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

the industry has evolved to include other sorts of intermediate representations which are not reflected in this article. Editing it the way it is structured does not allow for additional information to be added. Please note that industry has a new standard that delivers intermediate representation of the metadata structures of programming languages. It is an OMG and ISO standard. In some sense it is a way to compile. but you are compiling into a very detailed modeling framework which allows the representation of source, binary and byte code. The standard/spec is being used to deliver reverse engineering solutions that provide comprehensive static analysis. Can the owner provide a way to resolve this issue of an area not covered in this article? Would appreciate feedback.

Is C an intermediate language?[edit]

This doesn't sound like correct usage, because C isn't suitable to use inside a compiler while performing optimizations. From the compiler's point of view, it's the target language. (Of course it's then translated to binary, but that happens in a different compiler.)

Similarly, some compilers translate code to JavaScript, but this doesn't mean JavaScript is an intermediate language. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:09, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
