We are looking for a portable C Compiler to be targeted to a 16-bit
machine. The compiler will be hosted under VAX/VMS.

We have considered using PCC or GCC (the GNU C compiler). How do the
two compare in terms of porting efforts, reliability and quality of code
generated? Are there any other alternatives?

Please email responses or any comment that you might have to:

Thanks in advance,

[My original comment was that GCC was likely to be hard to retarget to
16-bit machines, given the gnu-oids disdain for anything less than 32, but
that PCC was originally written for 16-bit and should still work there. -John]
