Hi!

     Recently was released OpenWatcom 1.6 (http://www.openwatcom.org/). Its
distributive is available as monolithic installers for Windows and OS/2.

     Because there is no official distribution of OpenWatcom in .zip
archives since version 1.4, I prepare OW 1.6 distributive in .zip-s at
<http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/devel/c/openwatcom/1.6/>.
Here you find archives with same layout, as OW 1.3 distributive, readme.txt
(short introduction), license.txt and descript.ion (archives description
file, compatible with FAR Manage, NDOS and 4DOS).

     How this package may be useful? Let suggest, we need DOS host+DOS
target. What relate to DOS:

1. descriptions+license, 3 files/~30 kb
   DESCRIPT.ION LICENSE.TXT README.TXT
2. base package, 6 archives/~2.7 Mb
   CM_CORE_ALL.ZIP CM_CORE_DOS.ZIP CM_CORE_DOSWIN.ZIP
      CORE_ALL.ZIP                    CORE_DOSWIN.ZIP
                                         C_DOSWIN.ZIP
3. C++ addition to base package, 1 archive/~1.4 Mb
                                                      CPP_DOSWIN.ZIP
4. DOS extenders (may be downloaded all, one or nothing), 4 archives/~700 kb
   EXT_CAUSEWAY.ZIP EXT_DOS32A.ZIP EXT_DOS4GW.ZIP EXT_PMODEW.ZIP
5. debugger, 5 archives/~990 kb
   CM_DBG_ALL.ZIP CM_DBG_DOS.ZIP
                  CM_DBG_DOSWIN.ZIP CM_DBG_DOSOS2.ZIP CM_DBG_MISC1.ZIP
6. C RTL (standard headers and libraries), 5 archives/~1.7 Mb
   CM_CLIB_HDR.ZIP CM_CLIB_A16.ZIP CLIB_A16.ZIP
                   CM_CLIB_D16.ZIP CLIB_D16.ZIP
7. C RTL for DOS extenders, 2 archives/~630 kb
                   CM_CLIB_D32.ZIP CM_CLIB_A32.ZIP
8. C++ RTL, 3 archives/~1.1 Mb
      PLIB_HDR.ZIP CM_PLIB_A16.ZIP PLIB_A16.ZIP
9. C++ RTL for DOS extenders, 2 archives/~700 kb
                   CM_PLIB_A32.ZIP PLIB_A32.ZIP
10. help files, 2 archives/~2.1 Мb
   CM_HLP_DOS.ZIP HLP_DOS.ZIP
11. IDE, help and samples for IDE, 3 archives/~630 kb
   CM_IDE_ALL.ZIP CM_IDE_DOS.ZIP IDE_SAMPLES.ZIP
12. examples and RTL sources, 5 archives/~1.1 Mb
   CM_SAMPLES.ZIP CLIB_SAMPLES.ZIP PLIB_SAMPLES.ZIP MISC_SRC.ZIP CLIB.7Z

Total - 41 files, 14 Mb. There minimal set (only C, no C++ / help / samples
/ debugger) - [2]+[6] (11 files, ~4.4 Mb). All other may be combined. Now
compare this with original monolithic installer size (62 Mb).
