Wow, I'm impressed by all the discussion this has sparked. It's good to seeThe good old books of C programming showed how to program for a DOS environment, years ago. Anyway check help about DOS.H
an active dev community. So I think I'm nearly ready to start futzing around
with FreeDOS code, but it's still a little foreign to me: I'm used to 32-bit
Windows C++. In Visual Studio, no less. Are there any good books or online
guides out there for learning intermediate [Free]DOS 16-bit C programming?
You may need some more information about DOS itself if you are going to get into complex projects. Search (google, amazon) "The FreeDOS KERNEL", "Undocumented DOS", "Undocumented PCs", "DOS Internals", and other unvaluable jewels about that.
Also, do I need a native FreeDOS environment to compile in,No, you can compile in NT DOS boxes (at times I do that), or I guess in DOSEMU boxes, or under any OS that can run the compilers.
No, you shouldn't use GCC at all, because GCC (I guess you mean DJGPP) produces 32-bit DOS code (DPMI), and in DOS code should be mostly 16-bitor can I cross-compile with gcc?
Also also, is there a good IDE that'll run inSearch for SETEdit. It's good enough for me when programming in NASM or Pascal (for C I use Borland's environments)
Windows XP, or do I need to use RHIDE in something like DOSBox?
I rememberIt won't be slow if you use it in a fast machine...
using RHIDE on my old old old 486 Laptop the first time I started playing
around with DOS code, but it was unbearably slow.
