D.gnu - GCC Resources

I'm no compiler writer, but I've read the discussions here about 
GLUE'ing the D frontend onto GCC, which sounds like an excellent idea.  
I did a little research and thought I'd share everything I was able to 


RTL is the language that the backend processes into machine code.  
Obviously the GLUE code needs to convert whatever type of tree the D 
frontend produces into GCC's RTL.


This from the COBOL folks has a great deal of information about 
generating RTL from a syntax tree.

Don't know if that's anything that people hadn't seen before or not, but 
I hope it helps.  I personally really hope this works out: I'd love to 
be able to run D on Mac OS X!
