Is there anyway to debug 16-bit dos executables using Borland C++ 5.01?  I am experimenting with graphics.h, and I get tired of my programs crashing when something is wrong since they are not debugged while being executed.  Any info if GREATLY apprechiated!  Thanks in advance...

Use the standalone debugger 'Turbo Debugger' (td.exe).

Yes. The Turbo Debugger can be invoked directly from the IDE. It should be found under the Tools menu.  Since it is a text based app, don't expect much to look at, but it does things like popping up a snapshot of the cpu state on a GPF, and other goodies.
