SAS/C 7 ran fine under MorphOS on my PowerBook last time I tried (circa 2013) .


C or C++?

Compiling C with SAS on an 68030 was just fine in 199x.
Compiling C++ with Storm on an 68030 was just fine in 199x.
Compiling C++ with SAS on an 68030 was just useless in 199x.

SAS C++ isn't really a compiler but a preprocessor taking ages to create oversized C code.
SAS C then compiled that code into bloated object code (again taking ages).
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

So was the first C++ compiler as well (CFront).  No matter what, SAS/C only supported a small subset of C++, and this subset even diverges from C++, even more so today. It is next to useless today. Some important C++ are missing completely, such as templates.
