  • ETC (ExTendible Compiler) is a high level language compiler that allows the programmer to produce very efficient code when necessary, getting as close to the machine as he desires, and yet to write in machine independent statements when the production of optimized code is not necessary. The programmer may also easily extend ETC, creating new data types and operations either from previous extensions or from the machine operations (or both).
