CC5X ( will do it, and appears to be the least
expensive alternative.  The demo is not limited to a particular chip or a
time period, but is limited to 1024 instructions.  I have found some
things that simply don't work with it that do with other C compilers like
Hi_Tech C; I think there are some departures from ANSI C.  For the price
(free demo, $99 for the next level) I work around it.

Of course, if anyone knows an ANSI C compiler I can get for US$100 or so,
I'm all ears...

I know one: this is the one from CCS. I'm simply impressed from the
quality of their compiler. It exactly does what I expect. I did not found
and mistake in its compiled code, so I can rely on it. It runs under DOS
(very important for me!) and I could integrate also the P16PRO into it
seamlessly. A former bug in the IDE seems to be cured for now. $99 is a
pretty good price, and Don ( sends you quickly and
reliably (thanks, Don!).

I do not need stress it is my personal opinion.
