My position* is transpilers are a subset of compilers. So yes, Cfront was a compiler, and a transpiler.

* Which I admittedly didn't make clear in the parent comments, but did mention elsewhere in this thread.




Ah, it sounds like we are on the same page after all. I mistook what you said for something I've occasionally seen other people say, that a transpiler is not a compiler. My apology for the misunderstanding.
