Hello,

As only doing research in academic (working on IR), I have no idea of
what is going on in industry, and what is in demand. Answering any of
the following questions would be very helpful!!


1>I wonder what is the job market for compiler writters?
   - from www.compilerjobs.com, I see only Embedded/media processor is
creating   job openings..?
   - how competitive it is to get such a job?
   - what is the sort of skills in compiler is in demand?
   - Code generation, code optimization?

2> Compiler writters, are you feel happy with what you are doing? What
is looks like to persue a career in compiler?

3>What is the future job propective for Embedded processor's compiler?
Will all the compiler jobs be out-sourced to india and china, like
other embedded programming jobs?


4> It seems that lots of job ads require GCC for embedded processors,
I wonder ,In the market, what is the percentage of embedded compiler
is implemented in GCC? If I started to learn GCC's code generation,
would I be able to find a job?


Thanks!

Charlie

comp.compilers is a better place to ask questions about writing
compilers.

GCC on embedded processor,
As lots of Embedded compiler was implemented in GNU compiler collection, gdb,
etc..

Maybe the GNU and embedded experts have a better idea? ....

Any pointer is highly appreciated!

Like Ben Pfaff said, comp.lang.c and comp.lang.c++ have nothing to do with
compilers. Please check a more appropriate group such as the one he
suggested (comp.compilers).

1. Ask your instructors/professors for leads.
2. Each chip developer has one lead compiler writer and some
staff or they job out the work.
3. They need competitive optimization and reliable code.
