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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) Sat Mar 4 20:07 UTC 2006
I agree, I removed the "insufficient context" tag. --Sharcho 17:09, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
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 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:15, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
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. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:08, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
