Topic: 16 bit C compiler for Win16 / DOS / OS/2 subsystems

even a 16bit subsystem has to be written with a 32 bit compiler... remember, ROS is a 32bit OS You're right - for the kernel. But this doesn't apply to all the 16 bit DLLs which are also part of the 16 bit subsystem - and maybe the translation of system calls from the 16 bit to 32 bit side. My ques...

Yes, I know this and I successfully compiled a live cd but I'm also interested in 16 bit subsystem development. For this task, MinGW is simply useless.

My question is: What is the C compiler of your choice to develop the 16 bit subsystems? MinGW is for 32 bit development only.

Thank you for showing me this ... but ... I saw this too but where can I find specifications about it - and not only implementations?

Hi,

I know I can buy the NT IFS kit but I really don't like the idea of buying it for 900 USD ...

EDIT: Do you know any other sources where I can find specs about IFS development?

How to develop a FS driver

Hi, how can I find information about developing a file system driver? I looked into fs/template/template.c but it doesn't seem to fit my needs. The driver I wanted to implement is something like a RAM disk but it doesn't use a "real" FS. I thought about something like the dynamic-size RAM disk from ...

2. POSIX 1.3/OS/2 (2.0??) - NT4 supported limited POSIX (filenames are case insensitive) and this continued into 2000. Not sure about XP. Never used a program myself for these two but obviously there was some value or it was just easy to implement. When Microsoft didn't work on OS/2 any more, they ...

Replies: 61

NTFS (and FAT32) are important for Windows compatability but it would be really nice to see support for some good opensource filesystems as well (ReiserFS, etc). Yes you're right. But an opensource FS should be implemented before NTFS because NTFS is hardly documented and quite difficult to impleme...

Why shouldn't ros support all possible file systems ? Because the developers should be able to finish the FS implementation as fast as possible and therefore can concentrate on the core ASAP. EDIT: When most of the work at the core is finished, there is no argument against more file systems. The im...

My wishlist is: 1. POSIX - may allow us to use many (*nix-only) applications 2. Win16 - most of it should be quite easy to implement, because it's almost a stripped down Win32 API (only ANSI functions) + using 16 bit types EDIT: - The most difficult part would be the implementation of 286 PM. 3. DOS...

In the MSDN Library (Jan. 2005) and the PSDK are interesting descriptions about Winlogon and GINA DLLs (incl. login hook DLLs).

Even though Media Player Classic seems like a very good app, it probably doesn't have enough features for the average user (can it even use playlists?). MPC is a great video player, but lacks when you want audio. It supports playlists - but no media library. What features are you missing for audio ...

Is someone here trying to make a point that Windows 9X is unstable because of it running over DOS? If so, you are plain stupid. If there is something stable, it's DOS! How can DOS be stable when you can write an application that can crash the OS? The DOS utilities might be written in a stable way -...
