Well, it sort of lets you write for MS-DOS. It allows you to write console code in Dev-C++ natively without reconfiguring a bunch of stuff. If you really, REALLY must write C/C++ code for actual MS-DOS and not a Windows console application, then try dowloading and using an older compiler like Borland Turbo C++ ver. 2.0. Its available free from a link on this page, www.thefreecountry.com
. Otherwise, stick with VC++ or Dev-C++.
