A first approximation to a native port would indeed be to produce assembly code for an abstract machine that would probably require several native CPU instructions per abstract instruction, such that you would in fact produce native code and not require any byte-code interpreters. Once the system runs on the new platform, you could change the target assembly language. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
