gcc now does loop-unrolling as well. I have not yet seen the gcc 2.x versions
ported to MSDOS, but it shouldn't take long since djgpp is already out there
(D J DeLorie's port of gcc (gpp = g plus plus) to MSDOS 386/486 machines).
Granted, supercomputer compilers may do some useful things that gcc does not,
but gcc does pretty well for a lot of things.
