Just curious, I assume your project has to do with electronics
hardware in some form real or virtual, and related to embedded
hardware -- so I would like to ask one thing: Have you considered
SDCC? If so, would you like to comment on any TCC vs SDCC
considerations with regards to your project needs? (It is not my
intention to compare and declare winners, but only curious to
learn which one fits particular needs better in your case...)

My impression was that SDCC is the right choice if you wanted to
run on one of the supported processors, or had a lot of resources
behind you and wanted to provide really good support for a new

The manual says "8.3 Retargetting for other Processors: The issues
for retargetting the compiler are far too numerous to be covered
by this document."  It does point to a very brief wiki page,
for which the main link is broken.   There's pointers to two
threads which don't see relevant.

So, in summary, I felt I had no chance with SDCC, it's too big and
porting isn't documented.

Yeah, I had a look at its source code way back in the past and didn't go further. I'm a lurker both here and there, getting code written gets in the way of hacking at a open source compiler...

That won't stop me using the floating point support though!

Any pros and cons versus Berkeley SoftFloat?
