Hmm, I should have read the lists first.  Please don't send offline
copies of list mails a private mail.

Here's my other reply:


I don't even know what Rowley might be.  Anyway, I *completely* doubt
a 50 % code size saving as a general claim (i.e. outside a single
tailored case).  I think in general, IAR's compiler generates about
the tightest code for the AVR, and they could probably claim some
10...20 % code size savings(*) overall, though this depends on many
factors.  But then, IAR costs many thousands of bucks even for a
single-person single-computer license.(**)

If you want to start yet another compiler war :), got to
avrfreaks.net, and pose the question there.


(*) compared to GCC
(**) and it only runs on Win32

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
