More importantly, borland released (*free, for real*) TurboC to the web, which supports far pointers, among other things.
And probably optimizes better too... But I'll have to run it under DOSemu, as I don't want to install MS-DOS or FreeDOS. :)
Anyone who wants to run a Real operating system and be able to use DOS command line compilers should consider using FreeBSD rather than Linux. FreeBSD can run DOS executables in VM86 mode much like OS/2 and Windows, but without the instability. In Linux, your only option is DOSemu (as Jeff mentioned) which emulates a PC in software, which runs *way* slower. (This is not to say DOSemu is not a Really Good Thing, but if you've got a x86, using vm86 mode is faster). - To unsubscribe: send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'unsubscribe openbios' in the body of the message
So... who manages this project? What needs to be done, to write chipset drivers in C?
