A code generator by Alan L. Wendt <wendt@CS.ColoState.EDU> for the lcc C compiler front end. Version 0.6 is interfaced with Fraser and Hanson's lcc front end. The result is a C compiler with good code selection but no global optimisation. In 1993, Chop could compile and run small test programs on the VAX. The National Semiconductor 32000 and Motorola 68000 code generators are being upgraded for lcc compatibility.
