Dear Group
First post here!
I would like to design a C compiler as a college project.
Here are the design choices as they occur to me:-
1. I want my application to use host platform C libraries.
This 'll reduce the initial problem to only the front end
2. I want initially to parse the src code into 3 address code and
then generate assembly(AT&T/Intel) from it.While generating
assembly I want to use libraries mentioned in C.I'll try to do
it the gcc way.After all I'll be using their libraries.

Any ideas,suggestions,criticism will be eagarly lapped up.
Thank You
