Amstrad CPC programmation in C language

-

For those who would be interested in programming applications for Amstrad CPC in C language, you have at least 3 possibilities :

  • Z88dk v1.9 with cpcrslib (Amstrad CPC library for Z88dk) : several programs including an Amstrad CPC+ demo (Phat) have been programmed with Z88dk already
  • Small Device C Compiler v2.9.0 : Contiki and the pheelone demo has been compiled with SDCC, any other program that someone would know ?
  • CCZ80 v2.07 by Emilio Guerrero. This compiler can be used for developping Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and MSX programs on windows (command line application, with a GUI included). Gommy, Defensor Medieval a ZX Spectrum game has been programmed with CCZ80. There are 2 Amstrad CPC librairies usable for CCZ80 : cpcrslib (adapted from cpcrslib for Z88dk) and sprutilcpc ( included with CCZ80), but no Amstrad CPC program seems to have been programmed yet with CCZ80. If you have, let me know please.

From Scratch is a french Amstrad CPC demo by the Vanity demo group (Hicks and Beb) with sound by Tom & Jerry, a 6 mn multipart demo needing a CRTC 1 to run due to hardware tricks, also disable "Plus PPI emulation" if used with the WinAPE emulator (Go Settings then General).

Though you can see a video of From Scratch on Youtube, it will be better to use a real Amstrad CPC or an emulator.
