z88dk is a z80 C cross compiler supplied with an assembler/linker and a set of
libraries implementing the C standard library for a number of different z80
based machines. The name z88dk originates from the time when the project was
founded and targetted only the Cambridge z88 portable. 

The compiler featured in z88dk is much enhanced Small C compiler, the compiler
accepts many features of ANSI C and is only deficient in a few areas where
implementation on a z80 processor might prove inefficient. The compiler
performs simple optimizations, but the bulk of the optimization is done by a
set of peep-hole rules, which will typically reduce the size of a large
project by up to a third. 

The libraries supplied with z88dk are designed to be as generic as possible,
indeed it is possible to port to a new machine simply by supplying two library
routines and some startup code. It is hoped that one day z88dk will support as
many z80 based machines as there is information available and sufficient
interest in. 

Supported Targets:
z88dk produces code and programs that will run on the following machines:
ABC80, ABC800, Amstrad NC100, Amstrad CPC, Cambridge Z88, Commodore 128 (z80),
CP/M, Jupiter ACE, MSX 1, Mattel Aquarius, NASCOM 1/2, REX 6000, NewBrain,
Rabbit C.M., Sam Coupe, Sega Master System, Sharp MZ, Sharp OZ, SORD M5,
Spectravideo, Sprinter, TI82, TI83, TI83 Plus, TI85, TI86, TRS-80, TS2068,
VZ/Laser 200, ZX 81, ZX Spectrum, ZXVGS           

Further information can be obtained from the machine support page, screenshots
of z88dk running on various platforms can also be seen.

Supported Platforms 
z88dk is known to run on the following platforms:
Amiga, BeOS, HP-UX 9, Linux, MacOS X, Solaris, Win32, Win16 and MSDOS.
Binary releases are available for Amiga, Solaris and Win32.
Win16/MSDOS needs to be rolled by the user. On BSD machines, GNU make should
be used instead of the native make program.
