Hi all,

I'm actively using the port for the TI TMS320C67xx DSP.

Although my users typically write short (a few pages) programs that aren't
very exotic, for me the Compiler has been a rock solid workhorse.  The
lightning fast compile times are great.  Yes the code isn't that efficient,
I think mainly due to the one pass approach. If anyone has interest in the
C67x version please contact me.

Thanks everyone (especially Fabrice!) for their contributions.

I see. What patches do you currently have, if I may ask?

I've seen a few strange things in the code generated by tcc, like mov $0x0,
%eax followed by a mov $0x0,%eax.

I was wondering whether it is possible to make tcc output position
code (PIC). That probably takes a rewrite of i386-gen.c, right?

I'm also having problems with -b, which makes the program crash sometimes.
