The FAST and SOFA compilers

As part of the FreeDOS Summer Coding Blog Challenge, Bruce Axtens writes on his blog about the history of the FAST and SOFA compilers for FreeDOS.

If you don't know about FAST and SOFA, FAST is loosely based on Basic, Pascal, C and Assembler. The programs produced by FAST are very small and very fast. SOFA is an 8088 (and semi-80386) assembler, with syntax based somewhat on A86 and CHASM.

Both FAST and SOFA were created by Peter Campbell, who passed away in 2007. FAST and SOFA have since been released under the GNU GPL.
