there are some differences as to the language supported by GCC and
clang. For example clang supports so called blocks in C and
Objective-C (a feature very similar to closures in Scheme), while GCC
presently doesn't.

There may also be some differences in the ABI support for Objective-C
if you use "advanced" features like garbage collection. It is possible
that clang presently supports some features only if you target the
NeXT runtime, but not the GNU runtime for Objective-C.


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
