I have been asked to support an application written in C using the Lattice MS-DOS C Compiler Version 3.10.  I have no documentation on the compiler and would like to know if it has any debugging tools???

Lattice C didn't have any debugging tools.  It predates such things as Turbo C.

I do have the manuals for at least one version of Lattice C.  Do you have the manuals for your version?

If the remaining time of the applications life is long, it is recommended to move the application to a newer compiler, e.g. the Borland C / C++ (or C++ Builder)

Here is ther execelent debugging tools.

In most cases it is not hard to move the application.

The most complicated part in moving to another compiler will be the function libraries.  Lattice C had *mostly* K&R functions, but DOS-oriented stuff was completely separate.  Also, Lattice sold special libraries for windowing, databases, etc.

Do you have the documentation on the functions?  If so, it should be a snap.
