Hi,


I have a Z80 project in mind and would like to build a compiler for a
Z80. I was wondering if modern backend techniques can be applied
successfully for these old CPU's, i.e. SSA.


I know GCC has backends for some older architectures, but these do weird
gymnastics such as implementing a virtual cpu in rtl and then lowering
further.


Thanks,
Luke.
