Does anyone know of a decent compiler that will work under 16 bit DOS?  All the ones I've found only work in 32 bit enviroments.

Thanks,
Luke

Increased points to 100, and adding to the question.

Im also looking for some information on programming a GUI in 16 bit DOS.  If anyone has some insight, or can point me to a website that does, that would be great.

Thanks,
Luke

Visual C++ 1.52 works under Windows 3.11.  You can call the command line to invoke.
Otherwise try to get your hands on Microsoft C 6.0.

The borland 3.x .. 5.x compilers are the best for dos, IMHO. They are kinda nonstandard, but I don't think you will easily find a dos compiler with the stl. They offset this by having a lot of os specific libs that are really nice.

There probably is a way to compile G++ to work with dos, may have been done already, that would be a good modern c++ for it...
