C compilers for 8 bit machines

  I have Microware's C-09 for the Radio Shack Color Computer (6809) which
runs under OS-9. Due to memory constraints, the two-pass compiler resides
in two separate disk files. It also has an optimizer which the docs say
reduces code size by ~11%. It produces small and relatively fast code, has
a very few departures from K&R which are all documented in the docs intro
section, and supports a lot of high- and low-level system and I/O functions.

 A portable program is one that has the same bugs on many different computers.
