A Beginner's Guide to Using Free/Open Source Software Development Tools and Environments for Programming on Modern Platforms

C/C++ Programming For Beginner

 or Turbo C/C++ can be a great development tool... if you want to study and create programs for legacy systems of the 1990's such as DOS. One of the most inconvenient features of using such tools, and most especially within source code developed, is the use of libraries that are incompatible with modern system (unless an emulator is used), most notably the use of conio.h, a C header file used in old MS-DOS compilers to create text user interfaces.

The programming construct inherit within the Borland/Turbo C/C++ compilers and libraries are not described in The C Programming Language book, and are not part of the C standard library (ISO/IEC 9899:1999 or ISO/IEC 9899:2011). Therefore, programs compiled with header files such as conio.h cannot be distributed to non-DOS systems or systems which do not conveniently provide an emulation of the DOS architecture.

However, if you want to learn how to develop production-quality applications and software, you must use development tools that are best suited for software development on and distribution to modern systems.

Compilers and Command-line Interface

As an alternative to using Turbo C/C++ or MSVC++ related integrated development environments, which can be costly depending on your needs, there are Free and Open Source tools that provide all the development functionality you'll need to learn and develop C/C++ applications for modern systems.

List of C Compilers

MinGW ("Minimalistic GNU for Windows")

A collection of freely available and freely distributable Windows specific header files and import libraries combined with GNU toolsets that allow one to produce native Windows programs that do not rely on any 3rd-party C runtime DLLs. Here, you'll find the fundamental development tools, including:

  • gcc (C compiler)
  • g++ (C++ compiler)
  • fortran (Fortran 90/95 compiler)
  • gpc (Pascal compiler)
  • ada (Ada compiler)
  • java (Java compiler)
  • objc (Objective-C compiler) mingw32-make (GNU make) gdb (GNU debugger)

MSYS (Minimal SYStem)

A Bourne Shell command line interpreter system. It serves as an alternative to Microsoft's cmd.exe, providing a general purpose command line environment, which is particularly suited to use with MinGW, for porting of many Open Source applications to the MS-Windows platform.

Learn how to download and install the necessary packages needed for developing Windows applications with MinGW and MSYS:

Tiny C Compiler

A very small and very fast C compiler which is specialized to generate very small executables. Although it implements C90 standard and supports a few C99 features but is a very effective and efficient compiler.
It can be downloaded from:

LCC (Local C Compiler or Little C Compiler)

Another open source but not a free C compiler which can be used without any charge for personal use. For commercial use, you have to pay. It is retargetable and written in C. There comes an IDE for it too, called LCC-Win32.
It can be downloaded from here (the C-tutorial found here is a good resource too):

 There would be many other compilers we may have missed out. I am attaching a list of sites I got by a google search for "list of c compilers":

Text Editors/Integrated Development Environments 

We're confident that you know what a text editor is. If you're using Windows, chances are you've used Notepad often. 

An Integrated or Interactive Development Environment (IDE) is software that provides a text editor for editing source code and tools for building, running, and debugging your programs.

For most IDE's, the functions of software compilation, execution, and source script interpretation are provided by separate applications that are installed on a system. For example, if you're compiling source code written in C using Code::Blocks, it will call a compiler (GCC for example) in the background to compile your program.

However, you don't really need an IDE to write and compile programs. You can write source code using virtually any text editor. Write your source code in a text editor, save it. Then open a terminal or command prompt, navigate to the location of your source code file, run the compiler on that file, and you now have a program!

(NOTE: Do not use word processors like MS Word, as they save your source code in weird formatting and not in plain text. Plain text editors are want you want).

A free C++ integrated development environment (IDE) built to meet the most demanding needs of its users. It is designed to be very extensible and fully configurable. A beneficial aspect to Code::Blocks is that it includes the GCC from MinGW.

Download Code:Blocks (codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe)

Orwell Dev-C++
This is a project that aims to continue the development of the Dev-C++  IDE. If you're still using version, it's time for an upgrade!

Geany is a text editor using the GTK2 toolkit with basic features of an integrated development environment. It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a few dependencies from other packages. It supports many filetypes and has some nice features. Geany only requires the GTK2 runtime libraries.

Some basic features of Geany:
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Code folding
  • Symbol name auto-completion

Turbo C++ for ubuntu/linux using dosbox

turbo c ubuntu,linux using dosbox

The target of this article is to help C++ learners to run Turbo c++ under Ubuntu (Linux) O/s.

Turbo c++ is a quite generally utilized compiler for C and C++ in most Indian schools  and universities/colleges (SPECIALLY DELHI UNIVERSITY). Despite the fact that there are numerous different compilers like Eclipse Cpp (not to be confounded for Eclipse IDE for Java), CINT and so on accessible on the house and offer better functional and intriguing IDE characteristics, numerous schools and universities are even now utilizing Turbo c++ which is an old fashioned compiler. As scholars are never presented to such new engineering upgrades, they are not sure about utilizing most recent C++ compilers.

The excuse for why Turbo C++ can't run under Ubuntu is  in light of the fact that turbo C++ is constructed for Dos. Yet there is a method for doing it. The answer for this issue is utilizing Dosbox, which is a Dos emulator for Linux O/s. Dosbox has a repution of being extremely light and stable emulator for Dos based projects and was created with the intension of utilizing it to imitate Dos amusements and systems on linux frameworks.

You may be asking why I picked Dosbox in place of Wine, well thats since wine can't handle dos programs like Turbo C++, and I would say wine is  overwhelming on the framework as it is essentially implied for Windows based projects.

Steps for installation....


Download DOSBox Emulator from USC [Ubuntu Software Center].

download dosbox from ubuntu software centre


Run this command in terminal(Ctrl+Alt+T): 


sudo apt-get install dosbox

When your done installing Dosbox you will now require the turbo C++ installation setup which could be downloaded from here(download).(LINK UPDATED)

Unzip the setup zip folder and place the files in home/your-user-name directory (* Necessary)

Now open up Dosbox and Type in the below code (in separate lines):

mount c ~
cd setup

mount dosbox to run turbo c

     This will start the setup of  Turbo C++.

turbo c installation setup

     Here choose the destination drive as c and source path as setup in the next window.

source drive to use turbo c

   Select "Start Installation" in the below window.

start installation

Turbo C++ is now installed on Dosbox. You may consider checking it by executing the following code on Dosbox (in separate lines):


cd TC\bin


Step 2) Creating the configuration file

creating configuration file

Run this command in DOSBOX to generate the configuration file which will be stored as: /home/user-name/dosbox.conf.  Ensure you enter your system user-name in place of "your-username" in the below code:


config -writeconf /home/your-username/dosbox.conf

Step 3) Creating auto-mount and emulating in fullscreen.

auto mount in full screen

Open dosbox.conf that we created earlier in any text editor, which you will find it under home/your-username, and configure DOSBOX for auto-mount.

Add the following lines at the end of the configuration file as shown in the above highlight.

mount c ~ /home/your-username/

Now to set the default screen size to full-screen, find the word fullscreen in the same file (dosbox.conf)  and change its value to true:

Now you are done setting up the configuration file for Dosbox to auto-mount and emulate in fullscreen. Save the file and close it.

Step 4)  Deleting Ctrl+F9 key to avoid shutdown of Dosbox

And in the end you will have to delete a key from the Dosbox keymapper : Ctrl+F9
Since Ctrl+F9 is a Shutdown key in Dosbox you may feel very irritated with it, as the same key is used to compile a program in Turbo C++.

To work-around this issue, open dosbox and hold Ctrl+F1. Now in the window, select theshutdown option on the right hand side bottom, click on delete and then save and exit. This should remove the keymap to Shutdown DOSBOX.

dosbox key mapping

Step 5) Creating Launcher

To make things more convenient, we will create a launcher so that you can run your compiler just by double clicking on it. Here's how you can do it: 

Right click on the desktop and select create launcher.
Name: Turbo c++
command: dosbox -c TC.EXE -c EXIT

creating launcher for dosbox

and now its all set for you to enjoy Turbo C++ on Ubuntu./linux
