It passes and compiles the same amount of mono tests as on the x86 architecture.
mcs is self hosting on Linux/PPC.

Up to date.

Works on MacOS X 10.2, 10.3 and Linux/PPC, exception handling
is currently broken on the JIT.

*** PowerPC architecture:
<A HREF="http://e-www.motorola.com/brdata/PDFDB/docs/MPCFPE32B.pdf">PowerPC Programming environments manual</A><BR>
<A HREF="http://e-www.motorola.com/brdata/PDFDB/docs/MPC7410UM.pdf">G4 (7410) User's manual</A>
There's a very nice introduction to PowerPC assembly language
at <a
href="http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-ppc/">http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-ppc/</a>.
*** Calling conventions:
Linux on PPC32 uses the <a
href="http://refspecs.freestandards.org/elf/elfspec_ppc.pdf">The
PowerPC SystemV ABI specification</a>.
On MacOS X, the conventions are documented in the <a
href="http://developer.apple.com/documentation/DeveloperTools/Conceptual/MachORuntime/MachORuntime.pdf">Mach-O
Runtime Architecture</a>.
