||The compiler is based on the original Portable C Compiler by S. C.
Johnson, written in the late 70's. Even though much of the compiler has
been rewritten, some of the basics still remain.
The intention is to write a C99 compiler while still keeping it small,
simple, fast and understandable. Think of it as if it shall be able to
compile and run on PDP11 (even if it may not happen in reality). But
with this in mind it becomes important to think twice about what
algorithms are used.
The compiler is conceptually structured in two parts; pass1 which is
language-dependent, does parsing, typechecking and build trees, and
pass2 which is mostly language-independent.
About 50% of the frontend code and 80% of the backend code has been
rewritten. Most stuff is written by Anders Magnusson, with the
exception of the data-flow analysis part and the SSA conversion code
which is written by Peter A Jonsson, and the Mips port that were written
as part of a project by undergraduate students at LTU.
