It is definitely possible both to compile pcc linked to musl, and to compile musl using pcc. However, the version of pcc I have tried has some bugs that affect musl, including serious floating point bugs that results in printf going into an infinite loop and smashing the stack due to a loop not terminating on a floating point condition where it should. Are you interested in helping debug this? I haven't tried recent pcc releases again so it's possible that it's been fixed. I have not tested TinyCC at all. When I first tried it, musl did not have some machine-specific header stuff it needed, and it was impossible to build. It's likely that it works now though, or that it could be made to work without too much effort. I have no idea if tinycc can be used to compile musl though. > If yes, how to do that ? Just put CC=pcc or CC=tcc in your config.mak file. Rich
