Fwd: Octave JIT consultancy

Dear List,

I asked previously about the possibility of funding some development of
the Octave JIT (see below, I don't think I received any replies). I have
a company and might be in a position to do this in the future. I don't
think I received any reply, is there any interest in this at all?

Further to what I wrote below, there is also this:


The source of this JITBuilder library is published on github under the
Eclipse OMR licence:


This actually states though that you can relicense it under GPL v2 (or
some other licences).

More blog posts on it by the dev:


It seems to be under active development, the actual library source is here:


It uses the open source IMB Eclipse OMR compiler

Dear List,

I wonder if the following new(ish) library might ease the process of
developing the Octave JIT:


There's a blog post here:


It seems to hide much of the complexity of LLVM (and the need to update
for the LLVM API, as the library maintainers will hopefully do this).

I am also wondering about the possibility of funding some work on the
JIT in the future. If any of the core devs is in a position to do this
it would be interesting to get an idea of what it might cost to make
some substantial progress on the JIT.
