I haven't made a formal announcement here yet, so making it now.

Smaller C is a simple and small single-pass non-optimizing C
compiler currently supporting most of the C language common
between C89/ANSI C and C99 (minus some C89 and plus some C99

Targeted architectures:
- i80386+
- TR3200 virtual CPU

Hosting and Targeted OSes:
- MS-DOS 4.01+
- Windows XP+/Server 2003+
- Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS+
- RetroBSD on PIC32 MIPS microcontrollers in embedded systems

Self-hosing on and Cross-compiling for:
- Windows
- Linux

Has a rudimentary preprocessor, but on x86 can invoke gcc for
preprocessing if instructed to. Uses an external preprocessor
on RetroBSD.

Comes with a standard library for x86 and a linker for x86.

Uses an external assembler (NASM for x86) to assemble generated
assembly code.

Can produce 16-bit and 32-bit executables, including "flat" for
x86, which may be handy for custom bootloaders, hobby OSes and
