I had BDS C for my Z-80 box (the Australian 128Kb Microbee with
bank-switched memory), and hated it, as it barely understood C. $BOSS
then bought me Hi-Tech C, and it was full ANSI, to my surprise (that's
when I found the TMPFS M: drive stuff from somewhere).
I ported a few programs over that way (GREP etc, but damned slow, and I'll
probably get told that it couldn't possibly have worked[*]), but now all
sadly lost, alas.
I have a long history of doing the impossible, mostly because I was the
only one dumb enough to actually try it.
