It has a number if significant problems (C99, C++, GNU extension
support etc), and my understanding is that the code base is difficult
to deal with. I have not experimented with it or looked at the
implementation in enough depth to know how useful it would be for non-
codegen tasks though. The bigger problem with Tendra is that the
project is effectively dead, or moving so glacially that is
effectively dead (AFAIK).
Have you used Tendra before?
