TCC: A C compiler in only 201k

One thing that has always irked me is that my Desert Island disc doesn’t have a C compiling suite—mingw (6 megs 7z compressed) is just too big. Well, the next version of Desert Island will have a C compiler.

Browsing around on the Wikipedia, I discovered the Tiny C Compiler, which is a full C compiler which is only 201k in size 7-zip compressed.

Needless to say, the next version of the Desert Island disk will include TCC. In addition, I am very tempted to tweak things to make sure Deadwood can compile and run in TCC.

Happy new year 2010 everyone! I will not post another blog entry until early next week, I mean year, I mean decade.
