In our last release, I announced that JS++ core is down to nine (9) minor bugs after 3.5 years of engineering.
Here is the data for our lines of code:

In total, JS++ core consists of over 400,000 lines of code constructed over 3.5 years of engineering. This article discusses the software engineering methods behind JS++ to deliver high-quality and reliable software. Specifically, this article may be of particular interest because we will focus on a software engineering method for real-world compiler engineering; compilers sit at the foundation (bottom) of a technology stack, and a single bug with the compiler can make-or-break a software project. Thus, when high reliability and high correctness are needed in software, what can we do?
