Anyone knows something about this?

It seems they released a new tool working on Windows and Linux.

Of course, looking for it and nothing found. I can't understand you stop offering a product and make it dissapear completely from everywhere. The Z80 seems to be damned.

Its latest release is v7.80p2 from 1984-2001 for ms-dos and Windows XP
Sadly it does not work in windows 7 and up

This is done using that compiler
https://github.com/artrag/C-experiments-for-msx.git

Try this in openmsx with an msx 2 or TurboR

Too much trouble. Missing from everywhere, cracks...
They could offer it via online with PayPal or even free if they don't want to support it at all.

I will continue using ASCII-C as using C is to easy the task not for harden it.

Maybe nice if someone wrote an MSX-DOS emulator for Windows / Mac / Linux… Essentially an unthrottled Z80 emulator with hooks at the BDOS entry points to translate the calls to host OS operations (file access, console I/O). Then software like ASCII-C could be easily and quickly executed from cross-compiling build scripts. Should be a relatively easy project I’d say.

Why ? hitech -c compiler (as artrag suggestion) is a relatively modern, ANSI99 standard complaint, fast, highly optimizing compiler. It does run fine on DOS BOX.
and DOS BOX is available under windows, linux, and (never checked) Mac

Actually for DOSBOX the story is the same; I would want something that emulates the PC-DOS environment cross-platform, so I can run the hitech-c directly from the command line in a build script. Is there such a wrapper for DOS programs?

And additionally, I would say such a wrapper for MSX-DOS would be useful for more than C alone.

What I'd like most is a new C compiler compatible with the M80 and L80 so we could use all the ASCII libraries and could use the same code and libs already done.
Solid-C was the one, but unfortunately we know what happened Sad
