Blitz compiles always. It has no interpreter. When you hit the run operation you get a progress bar across the bottom of the screen and it runs.

Even Blitz can't beat Bebbo's GCC however.

I guess that's why this fork exists. It's to remove the parts that would only make sense on a PC, thus making it more maintainable and easier to optimize.
