PL/1 front-end for GNU Compiler Collection
|pl/1 news||March 30th, 2004
PL/1 for GCC is released under the GNU Public License; version 2.
Only minor changes added to this release.
Changes in pl1gcc v0.0.5:
Recognition of multiple ENDs
Fix for nested expressions
Just to summarize. The pl1gcc project is an attempt to create a native
PL/1 compiler using the GNU Compiler Collection. The project is looking
for more people to join the development and testing. If you have any spare
time, please do contact us and join the fun.
The project started up with a simple stand-alone scanner and parser, that
subsequently got integrated into the GCC build system by using the sample
language Treelang as a starting point. Current development concentrates
around the infrastructure necessary to recognize and support pl/1 and to
prepare for the actual code generation.
With version 0.0.5 one of the more exotic features of pl/1 has been implemented:
The closure of multiple scopes with just one END statement.
Note: pl1gcc is still in a very early phase of development, so "Front-end" might
currently be a bit of an overstatement, since no code generation is taking place.
