It sounded as if you were talking about a library that sits underneath such a thing. Lots of languages have their own runtime libraries (I maintain two of them), including Go, C++, Swift, and Objective-C. These are generally intended to be portable across front ends, defining the low-level binary interfaces that compilers target.
