libjit project is a library that implements just-in-time compilation functionality. Unlike other JITs, this one is designed to be independent of any particular virtual machine bytecode format or language.
Currently, libjit is used as the JIT backend for the DotGNU Portable.NET project (in addition to its default CVM backend). However, the hope is that other Free Software projects can use this library rather than spending large amounts of time writing their own JIT from scratch.
