Good evening, I'm trying to configure gcc 3.4.5 to be cross compiler with i686 as host and powerpc-wxworks (with altivec support) as target.

Recently I browsed through some Alteras Nios II documents. That CPU seems to have own instruction set depending from the size version. Further custom instructions are possible to implement. There are hints for all kind of developement toos including debuggers but I was not able to find a C Compiler. As far as I understand it is intended that designers have to use a free GNU Compiler.

I have taken over a project for the msp430 that has been built with TI's Code Composer Studio IDE and compiler.

The C/C++ compiler does not perform any preinitialization of uninitializ...
