Re: Status of the DLX backend for GCC?

The dlx backend was in gcc-2.7.2.3 (it is a 2.7.2.3 actually :) distribution
from this site:
http://www2.ucsc.edu/courses/cmps111-elm/dlx/tarballs/dlx-gcc.tgz

While this was a publicly available download 3 or 4 years ago (from a previous
site of the same author), it seems that the author forbids access to third
parties.

I have my own copy and if appropriate, i could upload it to my academic webpage.

I will submit a patch for mentioning my external location (adding DLX support to
the gcc-3.4.3/4) to the extensions.html page.
