Uh.. not exactly. B has nothing to do with C compilation, and even B::CC has no code to invoke a compiler.

. Oh, OK, I think I understand now. When I read,

This compiler backend takes Perl source and generates C source code corresponding to the internal structures that perl uses to run your program. When the generated C source is compiled and run, it cuts out the time which perl would have taken to load and parse your program into its internal semi-compiled form.

That put me under the impression that it generated and compiled C code. I kept wondering about that blurb near the bottom about "some compilers." I just didn't put two and two together, my bad.

Is it fair to stick a link to my site here?

Thanks for you patience.
