'C compiler opinions?'
2000\03\12@231740 by Dale Botkin

I've been using CC5Xfree for a couple of weeks now.  After the initial
pain of learning C by example, some things are a lot easier in C, some
would be a lot easier in assembler, but overall I guess I'm a C convert.

I'm pretty much a hobbyist at this for the time being, so paying for a
compiler is impractical at this point.  I may switch to something
bigger/faster/better if I have any luck with the next killer PIC-based
app, of course.  Are there other free C compilers I should look at?  How
much trouble will there be later on switching from one compiler to
another, if I do?  Any glaring shortcomings of CC5X I'll regret later?
I've used assemblers for quite a while for 8051 and PIC stuff, but like I
said, I'm a C newbie.  I like this one because it's free and integrates
with MPLAB.
