I have a few weeks of downtime between jobs coming up and I was considering trying to put together a m68k backend for LLVM. I have some experience with compiler front ends; I’ve maintained a couple of DSL implementations in the past, but I have relativly little knowledge of code generation. I know that there have been a few attempts in the past, but I cannot find any evidence that they made it very far.
I wanted to ask the LLVM community if there was a working m68k backend. I don’t want to spend too much effort replicating others work.
I only have three or four weeks of time to try and get an implementation off the ground. I wanted to know if that was a reasonable amount of time to get something working. I’ve been looking at the existing LLVM backends and it seems that possible.
Thank you for you time,
