JIT and NCI[edit]

JIT, the Just in time compiler is a system which compiles Parrot opcodes into native machine code for faster execution. NCI, the native call interface is a subsystem in Parrot that allows it to communicate with compiled library functions. These two systems are very important for Parrot and, as we shall see, they are closely related to one another.
