    You'd do better asking in a borland newsgroup, but.....
    If you're talking about the free command line compiler, it doesn't have an editior. You just go to the prompt and use bcc32.exe to compile your stuff.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    well, you can use the Borland Turbo DOS editors and then compile it under 5.5.

    There are a number of advanced text editors that can run DOS processes and trap their output. Personally, I use Ultra Edit, which is very good (imho).
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    Isn't this compiler for the Windows platform? You could also download a Windows editor, there are thirth party IDE's written for this compiler. You could also consider a programmer's editor. Such an editor supports many languages. I prefer CodeWright, other examples are Code Genie, PFE. For a small overview of available free editors:

    http://www.thefreecountry.com/develo.../editors.shtml

    Depending on the extension of the file which is edited, the editor decides which language is currently used and activates support for that. If you have also provided a link to the compiler for that language, then you can use the editor to compile the code. There are usually many more options, take a look at several editors and decide which one fits your needs.
