Although the Zilog ZDS II tools do their job, they definitely show their age. The main bottleneck is the C Compiler which is stuck at C89 making compiling modern C code painful if not impossible. Even when modern C code is C89 compliant it’s still no guarantee to compile (a good example is LUA). The C compiler is rather slow as well.

were once just a dream
