    Question Some help with borland c++ builder

    I just got Borland C++ Builder (the "real" thing, not the free version), so I'm quite new to it.
    I was just wondering how I can make a dos-project (to compile vga-code for example. a console program won't work). I can't find this option anywhere, and I found nothing about it in the developer's guide.
    So, could anyone please tell me how to do this?

    as far as i am aware the last version of borland to support dos programming was 4.52

    I dont think you can program for dos in builder sorry!

    search the web for DJGPP which will compile dos programs happily!

    I dont think so.

    but why would you want to when you can do opengl or directx?

    Well, I'm quite new to programming. I've read a pretty good book which handled most of the basic c++, and now I wanted to learn a bit about graphics programming and vga seemed to be pretty easy. Or do you have any better suggestion on what to move on to?

    Thanks, I'll check those links out.
    But isn't opengl and directx pretty advanced? Maybe I should try to learn some windows programming first?
