Atari target for Calypsi 68k C compiler

Post by vinz6751 »

Hello !

Håkan Thörngren has created the Calypsi cross-compiler tool chain https://www.calypsi.cc/. It targets the 68000 (and soon 68020+), 65816/6502 features a nice compiler, assembler and linker, and the documentation is really neat, check it out !
It allows coding PC-relative code, writing interrupt handlers etc.
This compiler is under active development and its primary target are the Foenix Retro System computers http://c256foenix.com.

Since this compiler is under active development, we can still provide feedback and influence its development. I asked Håkan if we could support producing Atari-compatible output (executable, DRI/GST ?), he said we would consider it if there is enough interest.

So please post here to manifest your interest ! Then we can come to Håkan and show it ! He also accepts donations so that might also be an incentive to get that job done ;) He's really nice and very talented ; must be to have come up with a whole compiler toolchain by himself !
He also has his own room "ht313" in Foenix Retro Systems discord server https://discord.gg/2GB47Vjf if you want to follow the development.

Awesome. Yeah, I think it would be really good to have some more compiler choices, seems very interesting.
Ain't no space like PeP-space.

A reason why i still compile with pure c is the fact the startup code is provided and it is easy to rewrite. In particular doing this allows to compile without any standard lib with limited overhead ( useful for demos )
