Thread: DOS C++ IDE for 386SX

    Default DOS C++ IDE for 386SX

    Hi Guys!

    What is the best DOS IDE for C++?
    I remember I used Borland C++ 3.1 but looks like it doesn't support STL and people complain it doesn't produce exe which can be run on modern Windows.

    It there any modern DOS C++ IDE or old one which supports most fresh C++?

    Check out the development tools available with FreeDOS:

    I would think Open Watcom would be about the most up-to-date DOS targeted C++ compiler:

    I don't think these have a DOS based IDE available but there are some nice text editors with programming features.

    Back in my college days, we used DJGPP, and RHIDE. While RHIDE is still around, it looks like SETEdit might be a better alternative.
    Currently seeking:
    * Roland MPU-401/AT (with daughter card header)
    * Magitronic K-156 Keyboard (5pin DIN w/ XT-AT switch)
    I also collect PC and C64 Sierra On-Line software!
