Go CPU Ports

The standard Go distribution includes compilers (known collectively as gc) for x86(8g), AMD-64(6g) and ARM(5g) CPUs.

This page collects references to various efforts to create ports to other architectures.

Gccgo should work in almost all architectures supported by gcc and the gold linker.


Dr Code(codedr@gmail.com) has a port to PPC in progress (qc and ql compile, work on qg has started). Google Code project page: https://codedr-go-ppc.googlecode.com/hg/

There was a further effort by Eric Van Hensbergen of IBM. Google Code project page: https://code.google.com/r/ericvh-go-ppc/
