No. There are many DOS-compilers available. Pacific C, Microsoft C and many many more. Some of them can be found here:

www.thefreecountry.com/developercity

Or use Google to search for "DOS C compilers" or something like that.

Correct, a Win32 console application is not a DOS-application.

DJGPP is pure DOS I believe, never used it, but heard nothing but good about it.

DJGPP is a 32-bit DOS compiler which has built in [and flexible] extended memory access which means you aren't limited to conventional memory.

it can be found at...

www.delorie.com/djgpp and the current version i believe is v2.0

i made my AktiF program [as well as previous versions released on this board] with it.

if you need further information or advice, you can ask the resident C Board DOS geeks, which include [but are not limited to] me [doubleanti] and Bubba. happy DJGPP-ing! :)
