Given your enthusiasm, the GNU version should be worth checking out,
especially for someone just starting. Since I have used the Dunfield suite
for the HC11 for so long (and the HC12 in the last few years) I am very
familiar it and very satisfied with the results. Thus, there is little
incentive to change at this point. As you know, in embedded work there are
subtle aspects of compiler behavior that take a while to learn.
Thanks for the tip.
