What are the feasibility options for a shell-script compiler. ie,
shell-script -----> special compiler -------> executable [or binary]
Imagine what a performance boost these compiled-shell-scripts can get to Linux.
so! what are the options? what all should be considered befre starting such a project? How much boost can a compiled binary give as compared to interpreted script? Has any attempt been already done for this (i got nothing from googling
any ideas! suggestions! flames! all welcomed...
