From what I've gathered, people would prefer a completed C99
front-end before a c++ front-end. I would be willing to complete the
C99 implmentation for a google summer of code project.
Are there any developers who would consider signing up on
summer of code and mentor me if I were to submit such a proposal?

How about completing C99?

- inline functions (Feature request 785200).
- There seem to be problems about how to implement bool on some ports
(Bug 1468666).
- Passing structures as function parameters (Feature request 674638).
- Passing unions as function parameters.
- Structure and union assignment.
- Some more standard functions (like memchr(), Feature request 772292 or
rand(), Feature request 1166180).
- Error checking (Bug 1309013, Bug 1474589, Bug 1302048)
- Floating point support (Bug 1299007)
- Double.
- Support for 64 bit integers.
- Support for declaring variables anywhere.

Some of the above seem to be port-specific though.

I am not a sdcc developer, just an user.
