Hello everybody,

I'm developing a compiler that translates the source code to
micro-operations first, before to machine codes.

A part of the idea is to allow easy translation for other CPUs, or new
CPUs with additional instructions, simply by switching translation
data (which is the collection of currently available micro-ops and
instructions) and recompile.

Has anyone done that before? Can anyone give me information on
similar or better method?

I hope my choice of words is not too confusing. I'd appreciate any
help or advice. Thanks in advance.
