Do you know about a compiler C which can compile into 16 bit? i've
tried watcom, but it's difficult to use and i need that 16 bit binary
to be an ELF, not an OMF, besides ELF is rudimentary in wlink.
The more general question,
suppose you have to write a bootloader (only stage1) in C and in real
mode, what compiler will you use?
ah, yeah..unfortunately.. gcc is not suitable for this,
because .code("asm16gcc"); directive makes the compiler to insert a
lot of 66 and 67 stuff in the code which makes the binary too large
for my purpose, moreover someone says that it will not work either, do
you confirm this?.
any help is appreciated..
