Cool. Another convert. (That's my term for former Microsoft
QBasic programmers who have joined the DJGPP faith.)

You don't need to. If you have ever used Borland C++ (like I did
before DJGPP), then there's something that will make DJGPP
feel all too familiar: RHIDE. RHIDE is an integrated development
environment for DJGPP that feels enough like Borland's to make
you feel right at home.

And if you're doing graphics and/or sound, you might want
the Allegro library by Shawn Hargreaves et al.

Get RHIDE and Allegro at the DJGPP page

Full source code to the popular puzzle game DOSArena(TM)
is available at
