This looks interesting. I'll read it more carefully later. Quick thing: The platform on which programs are built is usually called the 'build platform', while the platform on which programs run is called the 'host platform' (if the program creates output for some particular platform, that's the 'target platform'). It's probably best to stick to this terminology as its standardized on Unix and helps lessen confusion when people use the same word for different things. --Sortie 11:35, 30 September 2013 (CDT)

Agreed. Also, I'd probably separate the linker from the compiler back-end, primarily as otherwise someone reading this article might also expect it to describe how to create a linker in the 'Back-end' section. John 14:52, 30 September 2013 (CDT)
