'[OT]: CCS Vs HI-TECH'

hello everyone,

I have been asked to try out demo versions of both compilers b4 giving a
go-ahead as to which to be purchased. To be honest, i am more familar
with the CCS compiler and so my opinion might be quite biased. I am
interested to know what other people think re both compilers and if
there's a clear favorite.

TIA
seyi

Oluseyi,

I chose CCS 'C' because of price, availability, and utility in that
order.  I looked at HiTech C, but the price of it immediately turned
me away.  Cost was a major factor because my programming was for
hobby purposes only.  At least at that time.   Now, I'm doing some
programming on a semi professional level for friends and others.
I don't claim to be a professional programmer by any means, but I
can get the job done.  It may not be as fast or concise as a
professional, but it works nonetheless.   And CCS 'C' does what I
want it to.

Now maybe HiTech 'C' is a better, more ANSI compliant compiler, but
personally, ANSI compliance is not one of my high priority
preferences.  Again, this is because I'm not doing this for a
living.  If I were, I might think differently.

Anyway, bottom line from my perspective.....

1. CCS 'C' gets the job done.

2. CCS 'C' is (relatively) inexpensive.

3. CCS 'C' is very available.

4. CCS 'C' is simple to use.  Lots of built in functions.

5. CCS 'C' produces reasonably compact object code.

So all in all, it is the best value for my money as far as I'm
concerned.   I'm sure others will argue that point, and that's fair.
But I speak for me and not the whole microcontroller community.

Hope this helps you out.

                                         Regards,

                                           Jim
