Large parts of the authors web pages are currently unaccessible, but as far as
I remember lcc is not GPLed.

It would be nice to make it part of the source package, so people working with
the compiler would be able to run the test suite.

For now, rr.exex seems to have some problems. When trying to start it, I get

    warning: couldn't find .ini file rrrr.ini
    error in ini file : couldnt find section port

Interestingly, the name of the ini file changes with the command line. If I do
not execute "rr" but "rr.exe", I get the following:

    warning: couldn't find .ini file rr.exerr.ini
    error in ini file : couldnt find section port

So I renamed rr.ini --> rrrr.ini and tried again. This time I get

    couldnt change screensize to 80x50

Next try: I started a new command line interpreter (cmd.exe instead of
4nt.exe). Now I do get a blue screen with a header and a footer line, but the
program does not accept any keys.

Operating system was Windows NT 4.0 (english version).

TCP sockets are rather easy to do and they are more portable than named pipes
and similar stuff.

It depends. But I know definitely, that several people are using cc65 together
with embedded or home made hardware, some of them are actually on this list:-)
