Now that Abacus have announced their C compiler for the 64 I wake up a bit.
However, since it is expensive ($80 plus postage), especially for us over in
the old continent (remember the $ is so high that it looks like part of the
satellite defence system!), I want to know what I would get.
Questions, therefore:

1. Is it a true compiler, or simply (as many Pascal "compilers") a translator
   from some intermediate object?
2. Are there any practical restrictions (e.g. using the limited 64 stack)?
3. Any benchmarks, e.g. for sieve of Erastosthenes?
4. Any competitor products?

I would be happy to see answers via net.micro.cbm (plus, of course, answers
to the questions that I should have asked but didn't).
