I'm interested in finding references about the design of instruction sets for
software based virtual machines. For instance, the HOC calculator in
Kernighan & Pike's "Unix Programming Environment" is a simple stack based
machine with a small number of operators.
I'm especially interested in references on compiling a HLL, such as C, for a
VM that runs on a wide variety of different hardware platforms (rather than,
say, using the VM instruction set as an intermediate language).
Thanks in advance,
