What do you mean "source code to source code"? 

Traditionally, a cross compiler compiles source on one machine into binary
for another machine.

" ... new TV ad for Microsoft's Internet Explorer e-mail program which 
uses the musical theme of the "Confutatis Maledictis" from Mozart's 
Requiem. "Where do you want to go today?" is the cheery line on the 
screen, while the chorus sings "Confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus
addictis,". This translates to "The damned and accursed are convicted
to the flames of hell."
