The Icon Bar: News and features: RISC OS C Tools


Posted by Andrew Duffell on 13:16, 4/5/2005 | , , , ,
32bitCastle have got in contact to let us know that they have released version 5.6 of the RISC OS C Tools.

Mike Williams said "This new release includes fixes for all bugs reported through Castle's C support web pages and over 20 additional improvements/enhancements"

Principal Improvements

  • Numerous code generation improvements.
  • Improved checking of printf/scanf format strings.
  • Improved compilation of (int) longlong, (int) longlong >> 32, and longlong >> 1 or << 1. Also, long long multiplication and division by powers of two transformed into shifts.
  • Optimised handling of narrow (<32 bit) data and computations.
Principal Enhancements
  • Added complex and imaginary number support as specified in C99 Annex G.
  • _Bool, _Complex and _Imaginary now available in pcc and C90 modes.
  • Support for switch on a long long expression.
  • Added inter-statement compile-time evaluation of long long arithmetic.
  • asm keyword recognised in C++ mode.
  • IEEE 754 conformance improved; generally edging the compiler closer to C99 Annex F.
Current C Tools subscribers can download the new version from Castle's web site.

Either your link is wrong or Castle have not yet made Ctools5.60 available. All you get from the Castle site is the old Ctools5.56 - unless, that is, they have decided to name Ctools5.60 as Ctools5.56.zip!

We just do what the PR says, and it said 5.6 was available now.
It appears the site has been updated now though.
