    Where can i download the borland 3.1 compiler?

    I've been trying to find the borland 3.1 compiler online and haven't had any luck so far. I have searched google extensively and also the borland museum at their site.

    I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction as to where i can download this compiler please.

    Is there a reason why you need such an archaic compiler? If not I would suggest you check out something a little more contemporary. It will save you a lot of hassle down the road.

    The reason I need it is to compile some older code that uses dos.h
    It is my understanding that borland 3.1 up to 4.5 will compile that successfully.

    I have tried 2.0 but there is also some asm code in there that won't compile with it- thought I might try one of the newer versions.

    Is there anyone who can tell me where i can download these? I am still searching on google and can't find anywhere that will let me download them.

    From the:Borland museum
    you might try Turbo C++ 1.01. That should be a tad newer than the Turbo C 2.01. Can't guarantee it will get the job done though because I'm not sure exactly what 2.0 you've tried.

    Thanks Brian,

    I tried your suggestion and now all my code will compile with one exception- so I am at least a bit further ahead with this.

    I have some asm code in there and this is the only bit that won't compile- it says "Cannot find executable tasm.exe".

    This is turbo assembler and i have searched through the bin files and cannot find it. I know i probably have to download the tasm program from online, but is there a certain version that I need or will any kind do with this version of borland- c++ 1.01

    Thanks again

    I have a tasm32.exe from my bcb6 bin directory. Probably wont work though because you would be assembling 16-bit code. Probably be a copyright violation
