FreeBSD devel : bcc

Bruce's C compiler (with as and ld); can do 16-bit code

 This is Bruce Evans' C compiler and binutils package.


Either the compiler as the assembler are able to generate 16-bit code.
Hence it's possible to compile BIOS and DOS code under unix.

The C compiler does understand K&R1 syntax, with a few restrictions
regarding bitfields.  See the file work/bcc/bcc-cc1/bcc.bugs for
Bruce's bug list.

The binutils (assembler and loader) have been renamed to as86 and ld86
to not conflict with the system's assembler and loader, but they are
also available in the regular BINDIR (normally /usr/local/bin).

It's also possible to generate MC 6809 code with bcc/as.  (This is a
compile-time option however, and not supported by the binary package
as it comes with FreeBSD.)
 




bcc history


v. 1.11
date: 2003/10/29 18:39:44;  author: trevor;  state: Exp;  lines: +1 -0
Record conflict with ports/devel/bin86.

Approved by:	joerg (maintainer)

v. 1.10 date: 2003/03/07 06:00:09; author: ade; state: Exp; lines: +2 -1 Clear moonlight beckons. Requiem mors pacem pkg-comment, And be calm ports tree. E Nomini Patri, E Fili, E Spiritu Sancti.
v. 1.9 date: 2000/04/11 21:27:10; author: mharo; state: Exp; lines: +4 -4 PORTNAME/PORTVERSION update
v. 1.8 date: 1999/08/25 05:47:25; author: obrien; state: Exp; lines: +1 -1 Change Id->FreeBSD.
v. 1.7 date: 1998/08/23 01:08:37; author: hoek; state: Exp; lines: +6 -1 .ifndef NOMANCOMPRESS .def MANCOMPRESSED .dejavu
v. 1.6 date: 1996/11/18 11:22:35; author: asami; state: Exp; lines: +2 -2 Use MAN? macros. CATEGORIES+= -> CATEGORIES.
v. 1.5 date: 1995/11/26 11:28:48; author: asami; state: Exp; lines: +2 -2 Change gategory name "development" -> "devel". Also take out the "programming" that was in some of them, it's pretty obvious what we are talking about here.
v. 1.4 date: 1995/04/09 10:04:54; author: asami; state: Exp; lines: +4 -1 And now, yet another round of Makefile updates, devel version!
v. 1.3 date: 1995/04/01 13:48:30; author: joerg; state: Exp; lines: +2 -1 Claim my ports, and add the MAINTAINER entry.
v. 1.2 date: 1995/04/01 12:44:33; author: jkh; state: Exp; lines: +2 -1 Add CATEGORIES lines to a whole bunch of port Makefiles. Some ports are in multiple catagories - I'll expect the various MAINTAINERS to make further adjustments (and add any KEYWORDS lines) themselves.
v. 1.1 date: 1995/03/26 18:08:52; author: joerg; state: Exp; branches: 1.1.1; Initial revision
v. 1.1.1.1 date: 1995/03/26 18:08:53; author: joerg; state: Exp; lines: +0 -0 Bruce Evans' bcc C compiler. It is able to handle 16-bit code as well, and comes with an own assembler and loader. (They are already known from Minix and Linux as the `bin86' package.) With a bit of `dd' magic, bcc can be used to compile messdos programs. =============================================================================
