    A good C/C++ dev enviroment for Windows 98se on 700mhz system.

    I have a Windows 98se box I keep around. I want to use it for programming sometimes. I would like to know a good C/C++ setup I can use on it. I was recommended Bloodshed but I cant get the debug functions to work correctly with it on 98se.

    The box that has 98se on it is only running at 700mhz or so so I am trying to avoid the overhead that comes with the VS flavors etc. And I'd like something a little more advanced perhaps than bare bones GCC.

    Though lately DJGPPs download site is kinda wonky lately anyways.

    Thanks for your help.

    Though it seems like an exercise in frustration more than anything else.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You do realize that your box probably has less power than your smartphone?

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I tinker with old console game systems from the early 90s. Some of these have no debug, or GUI etc. And still use makefiles as main means of compiling, assembling and linking. Compared to that, GDB is a picnic.
