    Please help yourself by choosing a compiler that isn't 15+ years old. If you have Windows XP or later on your machine, you can use gcc-mingw [for example int eh Code::Blocks package] or Visual Studio Express edition. Both are free to download from the web (legally!).

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    That's a bad instance of the program. The good one has the request for disks, patched out.

    I agree completely with Mats - although I love my Turbo C/C++, it is completely inadequate for anything to do with Windows, unless you're working directly from the console window.

    I like MS Visual C/C++, but it does take a little getting used to.

    If you absolutely *must* have Turbo C for your class, Google for "Borland Legacy", and you should be able to find several versions of Turbo C, by following the links.

    You don't want "Turbo C ver. 2", that was a bad version. You want to use the C compiler and IDE in Turbo C/C++, which all came later.
