I am using OpenWatcom to code C++ for interest, and I am in search for better compilers. OpenWatcom doesn't have string input and output operators overloaded, I always have
to use workarounds. Can anyone name some standard compilers which compile and link pure DOS exectables for me?

Might I suggest DJGPP :)

By pure DOS executables, does this mean you need them to be 16 bit? What version of DOS are you running?

I am using MSDOS 7.1, the MS-DOS mode for WINDOWS 98
after having in MSDOS.SYS the following line


The compiled exectables are better to be 16-bit

Thank you Ketsuekiame, I am downloading it and going to give it a try right away.
