What is pl1gcc?
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 standalone 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.
After more testers and developers joined in, several syntax issues have
been fixed. Special thanks to Rob Watson, and also for the sample code
dating all the way back to 1969!
If you do try the compiler on some of
your own code, and do not get an OK back from the compiler, please let
us know, so we can adapt the grammar accordingly. Actually even if you
do get an OK back it would be nice to know the compiler worked for you.
