The latest Byte Magazine (November?) contains yet another comparison of C
compilers, this time for the Macintosh.  It appeared to me (and to the reviewer,
I think) that Manx's Aztec compiler was quite nice.  It presents a Unix-like
shell environment for development, and allows developed programs to use the
shell OR one of two levels of interface to Macintosh tools.  I'm not a Mac
jock, yet, so I can't elaborate too well.  One BIG gotcha, however . . .
it is copy-protected!  Yes, even though it is a software tool, it is copy-
protected!  I try to boycott that practice.  That is why I don't use Micro-
soft Word for PC work.
