There are two versions of Small-C that I KNOW of. Vers 2.1 I have and was
distributed by MT Books of Redwood City, CA a while back (Dr.Dobbs Fame)
I don't think it's really PD, but it's as close as you're likely to get.
I've got a Kaypro too & was looking for a better compiler (still am)
I'm basically giving in & buying a commercial one soon, but can't decide which.
I have a lot of code for C/80 & BD Software has a new Z-system compatible
compiler for cheep (90 or 60$ depending, see TCJ # 42 Z-corner for more info)
and Hi Tech C has been rumoured to be going for cheep lately in the US and is
supposedly ANSI compatible; Hence my indecision.
You can ask Jay Sage about BDS Z, since I think he can distribute it thru Sage
microsystems East. He is on the net, but commercial things don't belong here I
think. So you may want to contact him direct. I might buy both BDS Z & Hi
tech if I can get a deal on Hi tech. Let me know what you find out.
Also, I can send you the Small-c archive if you like; just send me yer address
& I'll see about the ok'ness of it ( I believe it's like shareware -25$ ???)
