    I have tried to get a hold of icc, you had to be a famous developer 
or pay money -- I wanted to try it because it was said to do a much 
better job of optimizing than the gnu compiler...

Somehow I don't know that your experience in getting free use of 
compilers is typical,

I wasn't aware Sun's compiler was available, unencumbered from sun and 
haven't heard of lcc/clang
will have to investigate them.

   " did say:" I didn't ask for an exhaustive list -- even one compiler 
that produces as good as [code] and supports 32/64 bit linux and windows..."

    Do any besides gnu have 64-bit supp0rt on Windows?
