Jitter is a generator of efficient language virtual machines. It has a preliminary web page on this server, pointing to the source code and additional information.

I started what became Jitter as an attempt to optimize GNU epsilon. Jitter has now evolved into an interesting project, useful on its own. It will be proposed to the GNU Project as well.

GNU epsilon

The Vaucanson project has
a web page at LRDE-EPITA; its official web site contains less information.
