At our 2nd year compiler/architecture course last year we used parts
of Appels Tiger compiler but replaced the Tiger language with a much
smaller language. We also let the students design their own target
machine (which they then built a simulator for in the architecture
part of the course). It, however, turned out that the students used
far too much time learning the interfaces to the compiler modules
(especially the Frame module), so we are going to use a simpler (and
less flexible) system this year.
