68k Rust

https://github.com/glaubitz/rust/tree/m68k-linux


68k Rust? Oh lord yes please.


Will be interesting to see where this goes, my understanding is that this project is initiated by Debian/68k people to get coverage up.

More importantly there seems to be some LLVM activity:

librustc_llvm: Enable M680x0 LLVM target
Might be this? https://github.com/M680x0/M680x0-llvm

Rust now available on 14 Debian architectures

The other potential candidate for Rust support is m68k. There are ongoing efforts to add m68k to both LLVM [2] and Rust [3] and while many people think that supporting modern Linux software on 30 year-old hardware is insane, I think it's actually fun :-).

Yes a LLVM 68k Backend is a obvious requirement for getting Rust up on 68k ofcourse.

Having Rust is more exciting then just LLVM by itself.

I think a working LLVM 68k port is more exciting .
Clang would be nice. We have GCC v6 but another modern C++ compiler would be nice.

The author of M680x0-llvm posted in August to the LLVM mailing list about merging changes to the main tree.
It's definitely interesting. Building it now (will take a while...).

LLVM has loads of frontends: ActionScript, Ada, C#, Common Lisp, Crystal, CUDA, D, Delphi, Fortran, Graphical G Programming Language, Halide, Haskell, Java bytecode, Julia, Kotlin, Lua, Objective-C, OpenGL Shading Language, Pony, Python, R, Ruby, Rust, Scala, Swift, and Xojo.
