    C compiler kit with book

    Do you guys remember the 1990's when you could buy a copy of Borland Turbo C and it would come in a solid color box with disks and a big manual with all the functions described?

    Is there currently any company that still packages something similar to that? I wouldn't mind paying for it.

    Take this with a grain of salt, because I'm not 100 % sure, but my guess is that you will be hard pressed to find something like this. Maybe you can hope for a CD/DVD with documentation at best. I'm not sure about the Microsoft environment though, as I have almost never used it (and if you want a C compiler from them I guess you are SOL).

    I know that you could order the manual for GCC before, I actually have an old copy lying around somewhere, but it is just the manpages in book form.
