Now *I* have a question:
I've tried this in the past, but have not been terribly impressed with
the quality (or efficiency) of the generated machine code. This was
8+ years ago. Does anybody have any experience with the practicality
of using C as a 3-address code target?
I do like the idea of using it to _debug_ 3-address code generation, though.
