SDCC (Small Device C Compiler)
The subject of this Summer Special article is a valuable tip, rather than a circuit. For some time now, a free C compiler for microprocessors has been available via the Internet. This compiler, which is called SDCC, can be found at the Sourceforge site (http://www.sourceforge.net). It runs under Linux and Windows (in a DOS window).There are distinct advantages to programming in C. For example, it is possible to reuse frequently used functions by packaging them in ‘routines’, which can be easily incorporated into new software projects.
