Have spent the last week targeting LCC ( for the National
Semiconductor 32000 series processor. Took 3 days and a false start
before I learned how to tweak the file. A second start + 2 days and
I have a reasonably good running compiler.

In a word, the structured pattern matching, with cost analysis is an
EXCELLENT code generation algorithm. The similar work above on a Fortran
compiler, with purchased front end, took about 4 months using hand coding.

All of the fixed point is running. Floating point has yet to be tackled.
Will make the file available, if anyone is interested.
