Mini Workshop on GCC Internals
About the workshop
We plan to conduct a mini workshop on GCC on Sat. 19th January 2008. This workshop will provide the basic conceptual and practical know how of the architecture, deployment, and enhancement of GCC framework. The goal is to take the participants to a threshold from where they can study GCC internals on their own without much help from others. This workshop is a much smaller version of the earlier workshop on GCC Internals that we had conducted.
At the end of this workshop, the participants should be able to:
Build a compiler from the GCC source
Understand how to build a cross compiler for a given architecture
Understand the various intermediate representations of program that GCC generated compiler can dump
Understand the retargetability framework of GCC (in particular, the machine descriptions of GCC)
Detailed handouts that contain more information will be provided depending on the number of participants.
Date, Venue, and Contact for Registration

At the moment, no lab session is planned. A separate lab session will be planned for those who are interested in a hands-on experience on the subsequent Saturday. If you are interested in this session, we suggest that you try to do some experimentation on your own during the week so that the lab session can address your needs directly.
