If I need to rewrite from scratch a non optimizing C compiler it's easy. Look at tcc, and I have plenty of students who had the "small and simple" project of writing a C compiler. Of course, when we bring C++ on the table, you hear "insane", "crazy", "far to complex" etc... I was refering to *that* complexity, not the current complexity of the best utra-super optimizing compiler which is gcc.
