Optimizing C Compilers

In response to Bjorn Freeman-Benson's note on optimizing C compilers, there
is a VERY good compiler sold by Tartan Labs, Pittsburgh PA 15213.

I have seen programs run 10-35% faster with Tartan's compiler, and some of the
code it generates is very impressive.  It is a true optimizing compiler, not
a hokey post processor.  And, no, they didn't pay me to say this.
