anybody has some GCC or any other tool chain for the above?
Or some pointers, which was the last version of the GCC tool chain
which supported the i860, and would be still compile-able on this days
I can't help with your quest, however I wish you both luck and the
energy to preserve your old grey cells when dealing with these beasts.
Back in the day I did some work on the i860. Fascinating chip. Very
capable of doing high speed vector math and multiply + add in a single
I believe (I'll have to check) that in the Osborne-McGraw-Hill/Intel
i860 book there's a quote from BillG saying that Microsoft was committed
to developing for the 860 as a personal computer CPU.
I think that never happened...it would have been interesting, however.
