Through someone's good graces, I received a copy of the source code
to Microware's 6809 C compiler last month. Written in C itself, the
compiler components have all been compiled successfully and run under
Linux and MacOS. This means that finally, we can use these tools on
very fast computers to compile legacy and new C source code for OS-9/
NitrOS-9 at blazing speeds. It also means that the compiler can
finally be improved to provide ANSI C compatibility.
I'm bound by certain restrictions on how I can share binaries, so I
haven't worked out all of the details on how the compiler might be
made available to people who want to use it.
The source base did not include the rma assembler or the rlink
linker. It happens that I have source code to an rma work-alike that
David Breeding made some years ago. This works fine; however there
is still no linker in place that works with the .r ROF format emitted
by the compiler. If someone happens to have written such a ROF
compatible linker that works like rlink, please contact me. This
would complete the tool-chain and give us a complete C cross-compiler
solution that we have been needing.
