I teach a compiler course in which the student's projects generate
SPARC code. To generate correct SPARC code the students need a
description of the SPARC architecture. We have been using the SUN
manual 800-1399-08 "The SPARC Architecture Manual".

The peculiar thing is that this manual is out of print. Every
year I get permission from SUN to photocopy my dog-eared copy
for the students.

Does anyone know what is going on with this manual?
Is there some replacement that I and my SUN sales rep. are unaware of?
Isn't the SPARC supposed to be an open architecture with a standard
description somewhere?
