We are intending to build a frontend compiler which translates ANSI C
plus our own extensions to pure ANSI C. Our idea is to use the sources
of the GNU C-Compiler and modify them such that C code is produced
instead of assembler code.

Is there anyone who has done such a job and can give advice? Maybe
there is even some modified gcc frontend or other software serving
this purpose ?

Thanks in advance

[I'd think GCC a very poor choice, since it quickly decontructs the input
C code into much lower level stuff. When I've done this sort of thing in
the past, I usually made the extensions lexically easy to recognize using
special brackets or keywords, and passed everything else through without
looking at it. -John]
