I'm planning to purchase a C compiler targeted for the Z80/Z180 that
runs on a MSDOS host system. Mainly for the Z180 but I will use it
occasionally on the Z80 too. I looked at the back issues of Embbeded
Systems and found an article in the Winter 1995 Programming Product
News special issue entitled "C and C++ Compilers: Important but
Becoming Invisible". In the back it has a matrix table of target uP
versus software companies.
I would like to get feed back on the listed compilers below, both
good and bad or indifferent, for the Z180/Z80 flavor. I guess
generic comment would be helpful also. If there are other companies
developing C compilers not listed, I would like feedback also on these.
I'm sure this will help others out as well so I will post a summary.
Z180/Z80 C Compiler list:
IAR Systems Software
Manx Software Systems
