GCC Workshop at IIT Bombay

Reached IIT Bombay today to participate in the GCC Workshop. I am looking forward to sitting in a classroom and learning things after a long, long time!

At the moment, I am in Bestin's (former student of mine working on GCC internals) room looking up MIPS assembler syntax (from Patterson and Hennessy) and trying out the SPIM simulator. The workshop will provide participants with skills required to write GCC machine descriptions - MIPS will be the architecture used for teaching.
