That either didn't answer my question or I simply didn't understand the answer.by Pete (no login)
BTW - Chandler, check out the '4 2' post I made about four posts down. It's a c code about powers of 2 for you. (You might already have it but if not, you might enjoy it.)
OK, you wrote:
>Dev-C++ makes Win32 EXEs.I only make console types.
You can however find DOS C compilers.Might be nice.<
I make console types in Dev-C++, too; however, if I took NTVDM out of my XP and tried to run one of those console applications, would it still work or does a console application compiled in DEV-C++ require DOS or DOS emulation to run?
I don't want a DOS compiler. There is one GPL...something, something out there like that and it is free for non-comercial use, but I'm not interesed.
I just want something other than DOS or DOS emulation but I would like to stay with a console. If this is NOT possible at all, I don't want to waste my time by not knowing that.
