I am interested in converting the back-end of a compiler from 68000 to 8088.
Does anyone know about possible problems that I will get doing this? I
already know about the problems involving the 16 bit word-length of the 8088.
Any help on this subject would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Johan Thole.
