It depends what do you want to implement. If you are willing to
implement an analysis pass using formal theoretical results, it is clear
that gcc isn't suitable. But if you are willing to implement a simple
code optimisation technique that generates low level code, gcc is well

If you are tackling source to source code transformations, it is another
story. Give us more precisions and maybe you will get better advices.

Since version 4, gcc becomes more and more readable. Some efforts have
been done to help beginners.
