c++.chat - Retargetting the compiler

Walter,

I was wondering how difficult it is to re-target the C (and C++) 
compiler to other CPU's? Like the TI or Infineon or Motorola chips used 
in the embedded world.

Thanks,
Arjan

It's at least 6 months full time work by someone who's done a code generator before. Much longer if they haven't.
