The source code for the chop fast automatically-generated code generator
system is now available for anonymous ftp. Chop is described in "Fast
Code Generation Using Automatically-Generated Decision Trees", ACM SIGPLAN
'90 PLDI, and other publications cited there.

The current revision, 0.6, is interfaced with Fraser and Hanson's lcc
front end. The result is a highly fast C compiler with good code
selection and no global optimization.

Project Status: Chop compiles and runs a number of small test programs on
the Vax. I'm currently updating the NS32k and 68K retargets for lcc
compatibility. After I get them working, I'll work on getting the system
to compile itself, get struct assignments working, improve the code
quality and compile speed, and run the SPEC benchmarks. That will be rev
1.0. This is rev 0.6.

Rev 0.6 is available by ftp from Download the
file "~ftp/pub/chop/0.6.tar.Z.
