I used Borland back in my MS-DOS days when they made Turbo C, and
that compiler was ahead of it's time--small footprint, fast,
conformed to the latest ANSI standards, compiled everything flawlessly,
and had lots of handy library functions for DOS programmers. It was
only when I needed a clean 32-bit compiler that I switched to
DJGPP's GNU C (see DJGPP section) in the late 1980's and early 1990's.
Borland's compiler is now owned by
Embarcadero as of July 2008
and is called
(2009 edition as of July 2009).
There is a
FAQ page and a
product edition page. Prices for the professional, enterprise, and
architect editions are $900, $2000, and $3500, respectively.
A free version is still available--see the freeware compiler column.
