|Organization:||is not good.|
Has anyone ever taken lcc and pasted a new language frontend on top?
If this was to be done what would be the best method? Generate the
same tree's as lcc or generate DAGS directly??
Could the lcc symbol table be used? perhaps modified a little for
languages with different scoping.
I have the lcc book and I belive they mentioned things like this in
the book, but has anyone ever tried it?
[Having been one of the earlier suckers who spliced a Fortran front end onto
a C compiler (a little earlier than f77) I can report that small semantic
differences between analogous constructs in different languages can drive
you nuts, particularly if you want to code to be good. -John]
