Re: [Tinycc-devel] TCC on new ARM selfhosted

I'd be interested in this mainly for use with Chicken Scheme.  The
compiler translates Scheme to C and then compiles the C.  (There is
also an interpreter, but it's not a particularly fast one.)  I use it
now on a Zaurus with gcc, but I run it from a chroot image on a CF
card because usually gcc is not installed on an OpenZaurus image.
It's also kindof slow, and I'm sure tcc would be much faster.

That would require an ARM inline assembler in TinyCC.
IIRC the one I wrote 1.5 years ago 'only' needs asm constraint handling
and parameter substitution to be complete. I posted to the list about the
( http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/tinycc-devel/2005-04/msg00015.html )
but got no reply. Haven't touched the code since then.

Only the division functions in libtcc1.c use x86 asm code.
An ARM version of libtcc1 has been sitting on my homepage for about 3
years: http://www.stud.uni-hannover.de/~daniel/tcc/
