This is a tiny C program that (partially) replaces the "lc" command line
front end that came with the Lattice/C compiler in version 5. It supports
many (but not all) of the command line switches of the original "lc"

"lcfront" does currently not support calling the linker ("BLink") or the
object module librarian ("oml") tool.

The sole purpose of this implementation, in case you wonder, is to replace
the original "lc" front-end on emulators that do not fully implement all
AmigaOs calls. In specific, the original "lc" requires CreateProc() and
hence multitasking, whereas the "vamos" virtual AmigaOs emulation does
not allow multitasking, and hence does not cover CreateProc().

Luckily, "lc" does not really depend on multitasking in any way, and just
starts the parser ("lc1"), the optimizer ("go") and the code generator ("lc2")
one after another. The very same can be done by simpler means and by functions
that are implemented by vamos.

vamos is part of the "amitools" project by Christian Vogelgsang, and
can be downloaded here:

Alternatively, if you prefer my version, you find it here:

Both versions are typically in sync, with minor bugfixes here
and there apart. Christian typically picks up my fixes, and vice

Thus, "lcfront" allows you to use the Lattice compiler under "vamos",
simply by replacing the "lc" front-end.

"lcfront" may also be interesting because it also supports some of the
internal (undocumented) command line switches of "lc1" and "lc2" you
don't find in the original Lattice manual. They are (partially)
documented in Ralph Babel's Guru Book, which is also highly recommended.
