    Getting DJGPP to work

    I got all the file extracted to the right places and all the env vars added into registry, but it does not work. How do I run it? I do not see any .exe files for DJGPP, only a djgpp.bat and when I open that it closes right away.

    Personally, I'd use Bloodsheds Dev-C++, it's easy to install.

    Secondly, if you want peopel to help you, you need to say something beyond 'it doesn't work'.

    I dunno how to run it cause there are no .exe's in my folder. Only 1 .bat file that opens and closes right away.

    Even your allegro problems can be solved by using MSVC++.
    DJGPP claims to have many unique functionalities,but (no offence)only the authors know how to use them.
    I aint a big fan of MS softwares,but yes,MSVC++ is good.

    If you read the readme files you will know what you do. You type gcc prog.c at the command prompt. If you do not know what a command prompt is then perhaps you should read up on basic computer usage before you try to become a programmer.
