My goto C for CP/M was always BDS C which is I believe still available along
with source which is now in the public domain.

Comart used to develop system stuff with it in the UK for their S-100 stuff
before moving to DeSmet C for 8088/86.

There is also Aztec C and HiTech C but I don't have any personal knowledge
of them or their current availability.
