The DeSmet C compiler, which was very good for its day (early to mid
1980's), and can still be found floating around the net as PCC, is now
available with source code under the GNU GPL.

Have fun!

Also, I have a question for the GPL geeks around here: Although the
compiler is under the GPL, I want to make sure that programs compiled
with DeSmet C do not automatically have to be open source. Thus, the
library is under the GNU LGPL.

However, does the library source have to be under the LGPL, or only
the binary?
