Not strictly mono, but also open source project implementing the .Net
runtime and tools, Portable.Net has a C compiler they claim works:
I haven't ever used it personally nor looked at it, but it probably works
fine when compiling C to IL. It won't run under mono, though - you need the
Another option you have is hidden at
which is a retargettable C compiler which is described in the "A
Retargettable C compiler: Design and Implementation" and which can emit CIL.
Not sure how good/buggy the output is, as I've never used lcc either.
hope that helps,
