Yes, they (COMSOL) sell C cross-compilers for microcontrollers. I would hope that there are embedded C programmers lurking in that group. Or perhaps there is a struggling embedded C programmer longing to burst free of the bonds of the big-iron... :-) Rob Young

Your argument would open up all newsgroups to spam from every company that "thought you'd be interested in their product". As far as I understand, unsolicited advertisements to newsgroups are allowed ONLY ONCE, and only for NEW PRODUCTS related to the newsgroup's topic. Using newsgroups to advertise your "sale of the week/month" or (perpetual) Anniversary sales is not what I think most people have in mind! ========= For LAN/WAN Protocol Analysis, check out PacketView Pro! ========= Patrick Klos Email: patrick@klos.com Klos Technologies, Inc.

It is only twice in three weeks in COMP.ARCH.EMBEDDED if you see it in other groups as well, then maybe they are not setting crossposts and followups in a best manner, However it is still ahrdly spamming, if you had seen it 36 times in ONE DAY, or over lots of UNRELATED groups, you *might* have a point. -- Paul Carpenter | paul@pcserviceselectronics.co.uk <http://www.pcserviceselectronics.co.uk/> PC Services <http://www.gnuh8.org.uk/> GNU H8 & mailing list info <http://www.badweb.org.uk/> For those web sites you hate

No. Neither of those are on-topic for advertising. -- Al Balmer Balmer Consulting removebalmerconsultingthis@att.net
