Does anybody know a C or pascal compiler that creates compact i80286
code? The machine code should be max. 10 % bigger than the of the
output of legacy assembler. Available for DOS environment, it should
be able to exclude the runtime libraries and to set linker options
specificly. E.g. organizing code at address 0E000h (org 0E000h like
in TASM). Why? Developing BIOS with size of max. 64K. Is there
something like this available as Freeware or Commercial software?

Thanks in advance,
