PyPy GSoC: asmgcc update
Apologizes for my lapse in updates. And thanks the people who bugged me on IRC for a status update. :)
I spent some time familiarizing myself with the purpose and implementation of trackgcroot.py, then started working on porting it to support the 64-bit instruction set, which has been fairly straightforward.
Currently I am using the asmgcc test suite to iterate through the "run tests -> investigate failure -> fix bug -> repeat" cycle. Once I have 64-bit asmgcc working, I want to eliminate some code duplication that has crept into my codebase. I expect to be working on asmgcc-64 for the rest of this week at the least.
