    You must first be able to run DOS programs. Namely XP wont allow you to do this.

    So are you going to mention your compiler?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
