Why a compiler generating C code isn't a real compiler?
You are perhaps excluding half of the existing compilers with such remark. I find sane to
generate portable code that can be compiled by highly optimized compilers (like GCC) that
targets nearly all common CPU architectures.
C is often seen, by lot of compiler makers, as a high level assembly language...
