Yeah, good idea. A lot of people in contests in the past started their entry at the very last minute. I hope the language isn't too complicated for the C64 >.<
Well believe it or not, compilers are so good at optimizing nowadays that they can beat humans at it. That said, you still have to write efficient algorithm, otherwise the compiler's effort is void. Also there are some things to keep in mind with modern architectures.See this for a great example: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11227809/why-is-processing-a-sorted-array-faster-than-an-unsorted-array.
This is why so many people loved programming calculators in the past and perhaps why they could become vintage platforms like the C64 in the future. People did not code much for the Nspire because they either wanted to push outdated platforms to their limits, which was more entertaining on the 83+/84+/89 series, or they wanted full-scale power, such as smartphones and computers.@DarkestEx have you gotten any luck with C64 developement so far?
