'[PIC]: Is C2C any good?'

Everyone recommends C2C as a good free alternative to High-Tech.  Is it that
good and what do you loose by using c2c instead of high-Tech?

I guess that depends on what you mean by good.

I haven't used either too much, but as I recall, c2c has a
weak/non-existant pre-processor. For example, you can't use #ifdef
constructs. There's an issue with signed/unsigned chars. For example, you
can't say "signed char". There's also an issue with structures. On the
version I had, structures were not recognized. Maybe these issues have
been fixed. Maybe not. But in either case, you can't easily change the
ingredients of free beer...

In my (biased) opinion, SDCC is much better than c2c. Neither aren't
nearly as good as the professional packages sold by HiTech or ByteCraft.
For hobbyists, I recommend SDCC. For professionals, I recommend commercial
C compilers.

Hi-Tech is almost ANSI-C and C2C is, well, somewhat like C. And C2C is no
longer supported.

I heard about Kanda, but not Optama. Is C2C still being developed? I just
went back and tried an old copy I had laying around and verified that it
had no preprocessor or struct support. But this is an *old* copy -
3.27.8e.

There is a version of C2C on the Matrix Multimedia learning C for PICs Cd.

There was a C++ version - don't think it did structs but it did provide a track of function calls and IRC ignored unused prototypes at compilation.

Not downloadable from the C2C site but was if you took the German Link.

the hitec is a c compiler
the c2c is c like compiler

try the cc5x that is very good alternative.

Hi,

please do not forget CCS. It is a very good workhorse with a lot of
functions (builtins). Not necessarily ANSI-compatible, but the deviation
is not terrible. For $99 it is a bargain. The 2.xxx line is stopped, but
the last member of this is mature enough.

My $0.02.

Regards,
Imre
