    Does Allegro Game Programming Library work with any compiler other than DJGPP?

    Also when I download Source it comes in a number of different C Programs, how do you link them and how do you make the Data file?

    Can I use Allegro with my <foobar> compiler?
    Not unless <foobar> is mentioned in readme.txt as one of the supported platforms. You could port it, but that is usually a lot of work. If <foobar> is a 16 bit DOS compiler like Borland C, you might as well just forget the idea :-)

    Read the manual (hint: try make...)

    > and how do you make the Data file?

    The datafile? Perhaps you mean a datafile...? Use the grabber found from tools/ (there's a file called grabber.txt that might help...)
