Multiple Pointer Types on HPPA
Mon Jun 21 12:46:00 GMT 1999
Is there a way to provide integral support for multiple
pointer types within GCC?
As you know, HPPA provides for short and long pointers.
But, the machine description only appears to support a
single pointer type and there is only a single PMODE
and POINTER_SIZE declaration possible.
I've been providing long pointer support on MPEiX through
some wrappers that force the programmer to treat long
pointers as a struct that can only be used in calls.
I would like to consider being able to natively support
long pointers to allow programmers to dereference them
as with short pointers.
Is there a way to do this within current porting
