Source code of C99 compiler

Recommended Posts

Anyone knows where to get the source code to the C99 v4 compiler (or any other version) ?

So far I’ve come accross disks with the compiler package, but not its underlying source code.

 

Thanks

The last contact I seem to have with Clint was back around 2003 from information I could find.  I found a note somewhere that indicated he retired in 2004.  That's 16 years ago, which would put him like in his late 70's or early 80's.


I called the one phone number I had for him and asked for Clint.  It wasn't a good number for him, and before I could complete  asking a second question, they hung up on me.  I could not find him on Linkedin nor Facebook.

 

I'll do a bit more digging, but it is likely the source has been lost.

I'm pretty sure there's a "c" forum here, did you search for c99 or similar..I'm pretty sure I've seen it. Hmm I'm still looking..

I found the source code from my last contact with Clint.  It is on a MESS image, so let me get it moved across to the TIPI so I can zip everything up.

OK, here is everything I have from Clint.  It was on a MESS image from about 2003 I distributed.  I believe the code is the MDOS version, but I can not confirm. it is possible the 4A version could be part of it as a conditional compile.  If memory serves me correctly, c99 would compile itself.  Code for the libraries I think are also included.

Thank you so much for releasing this. I wasn't aware, that the source code was not available in the wild.

It was available in the wild, just very few people probably even realized they had it.  Back in the 2003 timeframe, I made an effort to contact various authors of Geneve software to obtain source code to the programs I thought were very pertinent to the Geneve.  I knew I had conversed with Clint, but could not recall what he provided.  Fortunately, he provided the source code for everything.

 

I have no way to contact Clint, and since by now he would be in late 70's or early 80's, I really wonder if he is even around and still enjoying retirement, or not.

That must have felt a bit like a door to door salesman getting the door slammed in his face!

There were two folders, a C99M and a C99T.  I wasn't for sure, but the C99T had a single file that may be the only file necessary to compile C99M as a TI-99/4A version.

You should check with @F.G. Kaal. He uses C99 all the time and, I think, has extensively modified it or how he uses it or both. He has it on his website along with any of his changes.

Wow. (I'm just chiming in here, excuse me), Great to know.

I had started doing some C99 stuff years ago, ok, ions ago, but found forth readily available, and because of that I didn't pursue C-99. Next year or like 2022 I might take it up, unless I'm bogged down in forth by then.

Thx for that insight Lee 🙂

Now we just need that application setup somewhere for the public? Not sure how much he could/would allow. But something is better than nothing.
