Be warned that simple C compilers aren't able to produce machine code (or 
asm code) that runs as fast as what an average asm programmer can do in an 
average time, whereas sophisticated C compilers typically think of things 
that even asm experts wouldn't think of or bother with. A C compiler is 
likely to be "simple" if it's old, if it's made to fit in a small space, 
if it's written by one person, or if it's a sophisticated one that's been 
configured with optimisations turned off.
