C++ compiler that uses CFront

P: n/a
Does anyone know of any public domain C++ compiler that uses CFront as
its front end? If you do would appreciate the links or other related
info.

p.s. Info on any commercial C++ compiler that uses CFront is fine too.

Thanks.

I would be rather surprised if anyone were still using it, since
cfront was a pretty lousy compiler. These days everyone uses the EDG
front end. -John]

Since CFront was never public domain, I don't think a public domain
compiler could have used it.

None today, I'm pretty sure, since CFront itself hasn't been
maintained for years.

To be honest, it was a good deal better than its competitors
(Zortech, g++) back then.

Except those who don't: g++, Microsoft, Sun...:-). I'd be
pleased as punch if the "mainstream" compiler on any of my
platforms had an EDG front end, but none do. (Because we have
to link with third party libraries which are only provided for
the mainstream compiler, we're pretty much locked in.)
