I picked a diploma thesis assignment to implement a gcc frontend, and

From my investigation so far, it seems that there is not that much to
document, apart from "read this buch of links and you're basically done;
the rest changes so rapidly it doesn't make sense to document". But the
assignment is in place, so I will do my best to create something worth
reading. In particular, I was looking at GCC documentation assignments:
and I think my work could be useful for "fully document the interface of
front ends to GCC".
For the very first steps you may find the GCC hello world howto useful
I believe that the code must be GPL.
I'm trying to make the university to GPL the code and documentation, and
give up their copyright, so that it could be used without restriction,
but won't know the outcome until later this year.

Thanks for choosing GCC :-)
