100% agree with this statement. After a years of development you'll always
find some C++ feature(s) which will still be not implemented in tinycc.

My hope is that you'll stay on your work toward the ISO C99 compliance.

My usage: Comeau as a C++ compiler with TCC as a very fast and reliable

Thanks for your work,
