You would be able to learn a lot about x86 code generation by
analyzing the GNU gcc compiler for the x86. I re-targeted a C
compiler that I wrote to the x86 (80386 to be more specific), and the
gcc compiler was handy. Now you would ask why would I wrote another
compiler for the x86 when gcc was available. Well, just for fun since
I had a compiler that I wrote from scratch over the years and to see
it work on an x86 running Linux was great.
