Where can I find the #include<sys\nearptr.h> file?

Hello everybody!!!

While looking at the source code of a file I came across a line as:

#include <sys\nearptr.h>

I searched Visual C++ 5.0 / Borland C++ 4.0/5.0 and Turbo C++ 3.0 but I was unable to find this file. In fact when I e-mailed the author about this, he told me that the file may be in Turbo C++ 3.0 / Borland C++ 3.0  Isn't it that Turbo C++ compiler belongs to Borland (now Inprise). He also wrote something about DJCPP (or something awkward like this).

Please help me as to where I can locate this file.
It's urgent.

Thanks in advance.

This is from the DJGPP compiler... you can find that file in here...

btw, you nust use the DJGPP compile to compile this file that you've found, otherwise it'd probably result in crashes and stuff..
