HELP!! I'm currently working on a project to write an
intermediate code optimizer for the UNIX portable C compiler.
Our system has the compiler set up for a one-pass. I'm having
greate difficulties generating the two-pass version of pcc.
Has anyone generated the two-pass version, and how do I do it?

[Though PCC was originally written as a two-pass compiler, the two passes
were glommed together in about 1979 and as you can imagine, there has been
considerable bit rot in the unused two-pass code since. Unless someone has
reseparated the passes recently, you're in for some work. -John]
