There are several, but most of them are old. And some of them are
tightly bound to specific languages (e.g. C++). Also, I've not heavily
used them, so I can't say for sure which is easiest or best.

Off the top of my head, best GUI would be Allegro (though no longer
supported for DOS), esp. since you can use various languages with it
(FBC, FPC, DJGPP). Best TUI would maybe be TxWin (OpenWatcom).

There are others, of course, but you'll just have to try and see. I
know FPC has FreeVision (used by its IDE) and SETEDIT uses the
(heavily adapted p.d.) C++ version of TVision, if you're inclined that
way. And yes, Eric's right, Georg's port of FLTK looks awesome, if you
can stomach C++.  ;-)
