The Fox compiler.

Added by Peter Easthope 6 months ago

The Fox compiler in A2 is a cross compiler. Correct?

Therefore I wonder whether it can produce an executable for the Wirth RISC machine.

Thanks, ... Peter E.

That is correct. The Fox-Compiler generates a low level (virtual register based) intermediate code that can be translated relatively easily (well, easy as in "depending on the platform") to new platforms. It would require someone to write the respective code generator / backend, though.
