I give mine away for free. I'm basically concentrating on the
compiler at this point, and I gather other freeware from other authors
for support tools. The next release is extremely stable, as I spent a
great deal of time guilding it with itself to get the kinks out of it.
Anyway I have several people who use my compiler a lot and tell me so.
There were several people extremely intereested in redistributing it
as well, and sometimes I get hints that there are other people using
it that aren't talking to me directly.
Of course the target platform is DOS, I also support embedded 68K
development, I have some profs over in europe using my stuff in
classes. Occasionally someone thanks me because while DJGPP is very
comprehensive it is also a bear to figure out how to get it installed
and oonfigured if you don't have a lot of experience.
I also put in a lot of time fixing bugs that get reported to me, I am
very committed to having it be usable. My one gripe right now is it
produces somewhat slow code, I haven't quite got the hang of advanced
optimization techniques. Oh well...
