I have a book that programs C++ for Dos. Google for a bit and you will find some stuff.

I agree, the best way to go is through batch programming. I tried it at one time, lost interest relatively fast because I couldn't find any good tutorials online. Only thing I really learned how to do is a small executable "del *.*" file... of course it was for a good purpose *grins*

Default Use VB

Beleive it or not, you can write quite complex programs in DOS with Visual Basic... just not the new versions like VB-6 or VB.NET.

I think that you have to find a VB-3 program, to program 16-bit applications. All versions after that write files in 32-bit file format (which only work for windows). Good luck on finding a VB3 disk now days though...

But E-bay is God when it comes to rare and discontinued stuff. So try there. I wouldn't think it to be TOO expensive since it's so old...
