JITting code is a feature of many languages but has not yet landed in C++. However, there has been some work to integrate JITting into Clang by Hal Finkel. Having a JIT compiler offers flexibility at runtime without sacrificing compile-time performance, and can take advantage of late optimizations that maybe even better than those available at compile-time.

C++ is still in the early stages of exploring JIT capabilities. In this talk, we'll expand the boundaries and the possibilities of JITting in C++ by combining C++20 features with the clang-jit compiler work introduced in P1609. We'll show some use cases we find non-obvious and exciting and that may change the future of compile-time programming by blurring the boundary between compile-time and runtime.
