port to c16x/st10?

    Is anyone trying / going to add
    a c16x/st10 target to SDCC?

    Don't have much time to do this
    but I'm just wondering if there are
    more users of this architecture.

      I don't think anyone is doing that right now. I wouldn't recommend it either as SDCC is mainly an 8 bit compiler and the C16x are 16 bit. And there seems to be a gcc port for it already.

      If I may ask; what is the cause of this limitation?
      The allowable pointer sizes?
      Is this a true limit or a guess?

      Since this architecture is for embedded
      applications it is much alike the 8051,
      PIC and so devices. Basically it only has
      more pins and processing power.

      GCC is "mainly" for 32 bit archs,
      but this only seems a rule of thumb,
      with a lot of exceptions.

      BTW the GCC for c16x/st10 isn't free,
      and certainly not up-to-date.

      I was just wondering if there are
      more users of these chips in the
      open-source world....

      Anyone interested in creating a c16x/st10
      port when I try to raising some funds for this job?

      Don't have much time but when some
      people are also prepared to make a donation
      this is maybe a more interesting job...
