I am posting this request for a local company without email or news
access. Please reply to me via email and I will pass the information
on. Their question is:

"The motivation is to find a C compiler which generates space-efficient
code rather than speed-efficient code. The best way I know of doing this
is to generate psueudo-code which is interpreted by a kernel at runtime.
The target architecture is MS-DOS, though the compiler can run on
anything. So, I want to knw if there is a C compiler which generates
interpreted code to run under MS-DOS."

[Microsoft apparently uses such a compiler for MS Word and other applications,
but I haven't seen one for sale. -John]
