Language for Conversational Computing. Written at CMU in the 1960's. Similar to JOSS, with declarations, pointers and block structure from ALGOL 60. Implemented for IBM 360/IBM 370 under TSS. ["LCC Reference Manual", H.R. Van Zoeren, CMU 196]9.
programming, tool A hand-coded, retargetable compiler for ANSI C written by Dave Hanson . lcc's parser is faster than yacc and the code it generates is "as good as GCC". Version 1.8 includes a compiler, test suite and documentation. lcc has been ported to Vax, commercial backends for MIPS, SPARC, 68000 are cheap for universities. Chop is a code generator for use with lcc. (http://cs.princeton.edu/software/lcc/). E-mail: . ["A Retargetable C Compiler: Design and Implementation", Addison-Wesley, 1995, ISBN 0-8053-1670-1].
