Re: Transterpreter

Hello Jon,

Is there a guide to the bytecode, analogous to the old "Compiler Writers Guide" to the Transputer? Or even something that says "The following act just like the instructions in the Compiler Writers Guide, and here is the list of different or new ones."

I find the exactitude of the Compiler Writers Guide very helpful.

Does anyone know if the Transterpreter (as on www.transterpreter.org) is still ongoing. I'd like to port it to some new embedded hardware, but none of the mailing list or contact links on the website are working. If anyone

The Transterpreter project is indeed still ongoing, and the website
has been somewhat a victim of a server move. A few months ago the code
for the Transterpreter moved to the KRoC repository at Kent's
CSProjects service.

There are a comprehensive set of instructions for checking out the
KRoC tree located at

The note under the heading 'The Transterpreter' is relevant to build
the TVM - you should pass the command line argument


to the build script to generate a Transterpreter tool chain. Hopefully
this will assist in getting started. Please feel free to mail myself
or others from the project if you need further help or have any

Many thanks,
