This is a request for references.

I'm undertaking a master's thesis with a goal of compiling an object-
oriented language and generating RISC code. From previous course work, I
have a compiler that adequately handles the more traditional issues, and a
few of the simpler OO cases. The work to be done includes the write-up
and implementation of the following:

                Multiple inheritance
                Specialization of methods
                RISC instruction sequencing
                Register windows

Articles that define and discuss the use of OOP concepts haven't been hard
to find. Now I'm looking for implementation details. References such as
the Goldberg & Robson book, "Smalltalk-80: The Language and its
Implementation," have provided some ideas. However, I'm trying to find
more literature that is specific to compiled language, perhaps going into
greater detail.

I would also be interested in references on RISC code generation. By the
way, besides Sparc, is there any (commercial) RISC processor that provides
register windows?

Help in these areas would be greatly appreciated.
