[REQUEST] C Compilers, Assemblers, Editors for DOS 2+, Win3.1/9x

There are a few C compilers in the Library. I have tried installing a few of them, with varied success. Borland Turbo C mostly worked, a few others would either not start reliably under VirtualBox or they would crash.

There were a lot of smaller-name C Compilers during the late 80s/early 90s. Reading through an issue of Byte from 1987, I saw ads for a bunch:

  • Aztec C by MANX Software
  • Instant-C by Rational Systems
  • Datalight-C
  • Mark Williams Let's C (this one I am definitely interested in)
  • Supersoft C
  • Wizard C
  • C86PLUS by Computer Innovations (they took out a double-page ad! Pricey!)

I would also love to find some commercial (or non-commercial) C libraries for creating display output, ie something like CURSES but for DOS. And of course, more x86 assemblers/disassemblers etc. would be great :smile:

This is a wonderful site, glad I finally signed up instead of just lurking!
