Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper proposes a method of automatic retargeting of software development tools based on a plug-in method. The plug-in method is originally designed to augment a base processor's toolchain by adding plug-in's, which are software components that handle extra instructions and registers. Our method attempts to retarget a toolchain to an arbitrary processor based on the plug-in method, by embedding functions to deal with all its instructions and registers into a framework, which is a toolchain for a processor with no instructions nor registers. GNU Binutils and GDB are autogenerated from a simple XML specification of the target instruction set architecture. An experimental tool based on this method successfully generated, from
1475 lines of architecture description of a 16bit processor MeDIX-I, Binutils and GDB which are capable of assembling, disassembling, linking, simulating, and debugging.
