    I believe so, but there are libraries that you can download that will allow you to compile DOS programs. Or you can look for TURBO C 4.01 which I believe is the last version that was compatible with 16 bit DOS programs.

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    No it can compile dos programs, I had to use it for a class a few semesters back. I dont think we had to set it up special or anything so id say download it and try.

    yes true.
    it runs only under win32. with a huge *.tds file more than 300,000 kb. try djgpp- 32 bit- or turbo_c 2.01- 16 bit- for free.
