Re: C compiler in DOS

Most of todays compilers will compile a DOS application too.

Just leave out the GUI calls.....

I use Borlands and MSC ++...

both work in the DOS world too.

Re: C compiler in DOS

"DJGPP is a complete 32-bit C/C++ development system for Intel 80386 (and higher) PCs running DOS [or any form of MS Windows since 3.x -SS]. It includes ports of many GNU development utilities. The development tools require a 80386 or newer computer to run, as do the programs they produce."

FORTRAN, COBOL, Pascal and Ada also come to mind.

Re: C compiler in DOS


If you're _compiling_ on an older DOS-only box, Borland is giving away copies of its "Antique Software," and you can get a copy of Turbo C version 2.01 at this link:

Here's more information about the software, which originally shipped on May 11th, 1989:,1410,20841,00.html

Hope this helps,
