Z80 C Compiler

I like BBC Basic programming on the Z88, but I also wanted to write proper Z88 applications that appear in the main menu.  But I didn't really want to have to resort to Assembly Language.  This is where Z88dk comes in.  It is a C compiler that originally targetted the Z88 specifically.  So now I can write applications for the Z88 in C.  As a bonus Z88dk also works for many other Z80 based machines.

But rather than copy the resulting files straight to a real Z88; I've also found this rather good emulator:

...which seems a very easy way to test your code before sending to a physical machine. This emulator seems to work fine on Windows 7, even the 64 bit version.
