Cross-assemblers too. There was a very nice suite of cross-
assemblers that ran on PDP-11s under RT-11 and targeted many
different microprocessors. That cross-assembler suite was later
ported to UNIX and now lives on in many embedded toolchains, not the
least of which is SDCC.
Speaking of SDCC...if you're looking for a good Z80 C compiler, it
does target that architecture, among others. It's mature, quite
popular and has a quick development pace. Its primary target is the
mcs51 architecture, but it supports several others.
