Details on pcc


Strange as it is to use the words “C compiler” and “excitement” in the same sentence, there’s been a lot of excitement about PCC, the Portable C Compiler, as a faster replacement for GCC. (Previous story here)

There’s a web page for it, and a mailing list, though no mail archive I can find associated with it archived at MARC. (Thanks, Anonymous). The web page has a link to an old PostScript document detailing the original PCC design – there’s something about old Unix manuals from Bell Labs that makes them fun to read.

And of course, there’s always the inevitable Wikipedia page.

    I like the idea of ressurecting such an old piece of software….
