|GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) Internals|
In addition to the file machine.md, a machine description
includes a C header file conventionally given the name
machine.h and a C source file named machine.c.
The header file defines numerous macros that convey the information
about the target machine that does not fit into the scheme of the
.md file. The file tm.h should be a link to
machine.h. The header file config.h includes
tm.h and most compiler source files include config.h. The
source file defines a variable
targetm, which is a structure
containing pointers to functions and data relating to the target
machine. machine.c should also contain their definitions,
if they are not defined elsewhere in GCC, and other functions called
through the macros defined in the .h file.
