Citations Needed[edit]

What else is needed to remove the "citation" warning? I'm willing to find suitable links, but I need to know what information is contested or too vague. Armslurp (talk) 22:54, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

WTH?[edit]

WTH is this article tagged for providing "insufficient context"? IMO it provides all the context for a programmer or even a "mortal" user to understand. If this is not sufficient, perhaps the user should learn more about programming in general first. If i look up what gcc is without knowing what a compiler is, should the article be expanded too? Nonsense IMO.... -- De Zeurkous (root@zgsnet.xs4all.nl) Sat Mar 4 20:07 UTC 2006

I agree, I removed the "insufficient context" tag. --Sharcho 17:09, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Memories, Fond and Otherwise[edit]

I recall a few interesting things about DJGPP -

  • The first time you ported a program from Watcom to DJGPP you were astonished because:
    • You learned your code was rubbish because you (unknowingly) relied on Watcom to silently "repair" boo-boos.
    • Once you fixed your program it ran 10 times faster.
    • Zowie, look at all these free tools and libraries (Flex, Bison, Curses, Regex...)!
  • You stopped using DJGPP because you installed LInux to compile Perl 5 using gcc as a cross-compiler targeting DOS (because it broke the 8.3 naming convention) and forgot all about DOS. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.215.115.31 (talk) 17:15, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

C99 Support[edit]

It's been a while since I used DJGPP and/or DOS, but I don't think C99 support is very complete, as C99 had just recently been released when the last DJGPP version came out. 91.40.106.254 (talk) 23:08, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
