(well, not literally all, but most of the popular ones that immediately come to mind)

hmm I wonder what the Glasgow Haskell Compiler does. I guess it Glasgows the code

@hazel To be fair it also comes with GHCI (which still compiles but JITs fast enough to basically be an interpreter)

@Dolly yeah but you don't usually run full programs with ghci (well, I mean, there's runhaskell, but)

@hazel Not usually no, but that's the only part of GHC that I ever used! I know I'm not representative lol

@hazel ocaml even runs ridiculously fast relative to most languages in general
