professional I'm interested in the multiple platform aspect of
I have not looked at the source to see how easy it is to port the
code generator and optimizers to AVR/MSP430. This is the kind of
project (compilers and language translation tools) I really enjoy,
and have done many times in the past. I will look at it soon but
working on someone else's code has never been my idea of fun. People
speak of developing code "top down", or "bottom up" but I like the
"fun first" approach
