  • The Lattice C Compiler was released in June 1982 by Lifeboat Associates and was the first C compiler for the IBM Personal Computer. The compiler sold for $500 and would run on PC DOS or MS-DOS. The hardware requirements were 96KB of RAM and two floppy drives. It was ported to many other platforms, such as mainframes (MVS), minicomputers (VMS), workstations (UNIX), OS/2, the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and the Sinclair QL. The compiler was subsequently repackaged by Microsoft under a distribution agreement as Microsoft C version 2.0. Microsoft developed their own C compiler that was released in April 1985 as Microsoft C Compiler 3.0. Lattice was purchased by SAS Institute in 1987. After this, support for other platforms dwindled until compiler development ceased for all platforms except IBM mainframes. The product is still available in versions that run on other platforms, but these are cross compilers that only produce mainframe code. Some of the early 1982 commercial software for the IBM PC was ported from CP/M (where it was written for the BDS C subset of the C language) to MS-DOS using Lattice C including Perfect Writer, PerfectCalc, PerfectSpeller and PerfectFiler. This suite was bundled with the Seequa Chameleon and Columbia Data Products. * LMK, make tool * LSE, screen editor * TMN, text management utilities (en)
  • Lattice C (nach seinem Hersteller, Lattice, Incorporated) war 1982 der erste C-Compiler für MS-DOS auf dem IBM Personal Computer. Der Compiler wurde auf viele andere Plattformen portiert, wie zum Beispiel Mainframe Computer (MVS), Minicomputer (VMS), Workstations (UNIX), OS/2, den Commodore Amiga, den Atari ST und den Sinclair QL. Der Compiler wurde später auch von Microsoft als Microsoft C in anderer Verpackung verkauft. 1987 wurde Lattice vom SAS Institute aufgekauft. Danach verschwand die Unterstützung für andere Plattformen nach und nach, bis die Compiler-Entwicklung vollständig auf IBM-Mainframes ausgerichtet wurde. Das Produkt ist zwar noch immer in Versionen verfügbar, die auch auf anderen Plattformen laufen, aber es handelt sich dabei um Cross-Compiler, die nur Mainframe-Code produzieren. Ein Teil der frühen, kommerziellen Software für den IBM PC aus dem Jahr 1982, darunter PerfectWriter, PerfectCalc, PerfectSpeller und PerfectFiler (dessen Suite gebündelt war mit Seequa Chameleon und Columbia Data Products), wurde von CP/M (wo es in BDS C geschrieben war) mittels Lattice C nach MS-DOS portiert.

  • Lattice C è stato il primo compilatore di linguaggio C per Commodore Amiga, prodotto da Lattice Incorporated, ma era in effetti disponibile per una varietà di sistemi operativi e piattaforme, tra i quali MS-DOS, Sinclair QL, Atari ST, OS/2, UNIX, VMS e altri. La diffusione di Lattice C nel mondo Amiga, che lo rese una sorta di standard de facto per la programmazione, era dovuta al fatto che fu il primo ambiente di sviluppo completo, tanto da essere usato anche nella documentazione ufficiale di Commodore. L'unico prodotto che insidiò per un certo tempo questa sorta di monopolio fu Aztec C di Manx, che però non tenne il passo con le evoluzioni del sistema operativo di Amiga e finì con l'essere abbandonato da sviluppatori e produttori. Nel 1987 Lattice fu acquistata dal SAS Institute e lo sviluppo e il supporto del pacchetto furono sempre più ridotte sino a terminare praticamente del tutto per qualunque piattaforma che non fossero i mainframe di IBM.

  • Lattice C — первый компилятор языка C для операционной системы MS-DOS. Был создан фирмой Lattice, Inc. в 1982 году. Был портирован и на другие платформы и операционные системы: мэйнфреймы, UNIX, OS/2, Atari, Commodore Amiga, Sinclair QL Позже, в рамках дистрибьюторского соглашения, выпускался под названием Microsoft C. В 1987 году Lattice был приобретён компанией SAS Institute (a не Microsoft, как считают многие). После этого развитие компилятора для всех платформ, кроме мэйнфреймов IBM, прекратилось. В начале 1982 г. некоторые из коммерческих программных продуктов для IBM PC были перенесены с CP/M (под которой они были написаны для BDS C, разновидности языка Си) в MS-DOS, включая такие продукты, как Perfect Writer, PerfectCalc, PerfectSpeller и PerfectFiler (которые шли в пакете с программами Seequa Chameleon и Columbia Data Product).
