- Subject: Backend Programming
I would like to use GCC to program some types of microcontrollers -
Microchip's PIC if it's of any interest - and I would like to know the
amount of work involved in writing a backend for this very small chip?
It has very few instructions and very few registers.
In fact, it's probably very near some already existing backend so,
hopefully, I won't have to start from scratch. I don't have any
experience in GCC but I have a strong background in C/C++. So, just to
1. How much time anyone thinks it takes?
2. Any pointers to what I have to do?
Note: I don't need any part of the standard libraries.
