Sozobon Ltd has recently released a freely-distributable compiler package
for the Atari ST (68000). It includes full sources for the following
C Library (dLibs from Dale Schumacher)
various tools (make, size, nm, cc)
If anyone is interested in taking what we have and porting it to additional
68000 based computers, they are free to do so. The main task for each
port is producing interface stubs for the host OS and appropriate headers
for these stubs. The compiler's register usage may also need to be
adapted to the new machine's conventions.
The only rewards are fame and glory (minimal) and the helping of your
fellow programmers. Unfortunately, you need to already have a compiler
on the target machine (or at least an assembler and linker) to do the port.
If you are interested in any help or advice from us, you can contact us
as wldrdg!hans or wldrdg!tony. There is currently an Amiga port
that uses another free assembler (A68K from Charlie Gibbs) but lacks
the optimizer port and freely-redistributable AmigaDos library and headers.
