I am interested in writing an assembler that will compile code for different
architectures. If anyone has information on previous research regarding
this, please let me know.
By "compile code", I do not mean convert ASM code for an 80386 to 68030.
Rather, I want to be able to compile 80386 ASM code and 68030 code.
A primary consideration is speed.
I would also appreciate info on optimizing assemblers.

[The Gnu assembler gas handles multiple targets, pretty much table
driven. Also, look at Fitz and Crockett, "Universal Assembler Language,"
TAB Books, 1986, ISBN 0-8306-2730-8, which describes an attempt to write an
assembler that can turn a generic input assembly language into machine code
for any of a large number of micros. Pretty strange, but interesting. -John]
