Unless you are talking about something like "A Retargetable C Compiler: Design and Implementation", it is definitly not easy.


During the early 80's, the best home computers could get was Small-C.


Small-C was the best one with open source, but there were many others. This one was my favorite: https://www.bdsoft.com/resources/bdsc.html

What I got back in the day came in book form, it was also another flavour.

"A book on C"


It uses a K&R C subset with bytecodes and a bytecode-> machine language translation.

I just never bothered to type it in though.
