LCC-DOS.ZIP 4.2 using DJGPP libc 2.01 (28-Aug-2011) (Miscellaneous)

He actually spent a lot of time working on it, mostly due to his VESA gfx routines (with font support) and various examples and documentation (.tex). LCC by default doesn't come with a libc nor headers nor even assembler nor linker, so integrating all that also takes time and effort. I'm just saying, he's a hard worker! ;-)

It's clearly a lightweight alternative to GCC and easier to build since it relies less on POSIX. LCC is C89 only hence less cruft, so to speak. I know DJGPP's GCC is hard to build, but IIRC the only one semi-sane would be old, so I guess I would loosely compare it to that. However, I'm pretty sure he never built LCC-DOS totally with itself, due to some minor omissions, but it's certainly possible with a few tweaks, I assume.

BTW, I did email him, and he did say he'll eventually try to fix the issues mentioned if he can find the time.
