Submission + - pcc 1.0.0 released (

joeyadams writes: Pcc, a BSD-licensed C99 compiler that aims to be "small, simple, fast and understandable", has finally made it to version 1.0. As OpenBSD-founder Theo de Raadt said way back in 2007, "This is just an attempt to see if something better [than GCC] can show up.".

Pcc is based on the Portable C Compiler written by Stephen C. Johnson in the mid-1970s, and is now being maintained by Anders Magnusson.
