Where can I find a DOS editor for code composed using Digital Research DOS circa 1987?

I have a DOS application and its code that was created ~1987. All I know about its editor/compiler is that one of its BAS files (am86xtr.bas)comes from Digital Research circa 1981. I want to review the code and debug it but need the appropriate editor/compiler to do so. Can anyone direct me to a Web site(s) that may have such a resource.

Thanks

Look up FreeBASIC and other BASIC tools at  http://www.thefreecountry.com/compilers/basic.shtml

The original may have been created with QBasic or QuickBasic, but FreeBASIC is said to be compatible with those. Will see if I can find QBasic & whether it's free or not.

Hi ICCR,

this one keeps a list of downloads of compilers for C and BASIC
source: http://www.users.zetnet.co.uk/barnes_firsnorton/files/

you could also check this site, which is more of a historic overview and some recent links to the OS

hope this helps a bit
