Looking for references on converting assembler to a HLL. Any help would be
appreciated. -- Bud
[About 30 years ago, there were a bunch of Autocoder-to-Cobol translators
that turned the assembler for an early IBM small computer into Cobol, but
the instruction set made that pretty easy. In general, it is extremely
hard. One thing I have looked at is exec-2-c which the Austin Code Works
has been testing. It turns MS-DOS executable files into C, but the C is
very low level, with variables for the 8086's machine registers. It works
fine, but it didn't seem very practical to me. Contact guthery@acw.com
for details.
