So you are using the C++ language to create a DOS application.  Yes, you CAN do
this.  The question is, CAN your compiler do this?  You say you bought C++ 6.0.
The assumption is that you are referring to Micro$oft Visual C++ version 6.0,
in which case you CANNOT make DOS programs.  You CAN make Windows NT Console
Applications, which are Windows programs that run in what appears to be a DOS
window, but are NOT DOS applications.

If this is the case, then this is the WRONG group to be posting to, as this
group deals not with C++ in general, but with DJGPP's compilers, not Microsofts
implementation.  You need to take this question to an appropriate newsgroup.

Is it suitable for a newbie?  That entire depends on you.  You are the newbie,
you are the one who should be trying to write the program.  Posting a vague
question asking whether it's something you should try doing isn't really a good
question, as we don't know how intelligent (or its reverse) you are.
