     Unfortunately, OW doesn't "largely compatible" (and never was/is
planned to be) with BC. As pointed by Michael Necasek, main compatability
target is a Microsoft C compilers. For example, you will not find __MSDOS__
macros (only MSDOS), in* and out* functions declared in conio.h (not in
i86.h/dos.h), fcntl.h doesn't declares names like O_DENYALL, etc. I even not
mention compiler division by WCL/WCC/WPP, which is completely taken from MS.
