Advice on writing a cross-compiler in C for 8051 series of microcontrollers

I want to write a cross-compiler in C for 8051 series of microcontrollers. Could you please help me by offering me some guidelines and guidance? Information on related resources would be appreciated, too. Thanks.
Ah, the old Intel 8051. It was the first CPU I developed a debugger for and it brings back great memories. Writing a compiler for any CPU is similar to any other CPU. While I haven't written one, the two books I can highly recommend are "Compilers: Principles, Techniques and Tools" by Alfred V. Aho, Ravi Sethi and Jeffrey D. Ullman and "Compiler Design in C" by Allen Holub.
This was first published in August 2002
