I am looking for a basic compiler for the C64 and I need some help.
I have only found two compilers so far, Blitz! and Petspeed.
Does anybody know of any others?

I just purchased Blitz! and I wish I hadn't.  It isn't very
good.  In fact it's down right poor.

I haven't been able to locate Petspeed anywhere.  Can anybody
clue me in as to where I might find it?

Please respond to the net with any useful info.

			Thanks in advance,
			Chris Barbay

   Gee, hate to say it but I have compared BLITZ! and PetSpeed and would
   take Blitz over PetSpeed any day... The two main reasons are compile
   time/convinence, features and most especialy the fact that Blitz converts
   all interger variables to intergers. (PetSpeed converts integer to Float; 
   does the calculations; then converts back.) Blitz programs come out shorter
   also...
	   PetSpeed is no longer being sold... call up some software stores that
   have gone out of the commodore business they may have it on some back shelf.
 
   Maybe you should look into public domain PROMAL............
