I've use DJGPP since the first v2 release in 1996. I've upgraded 
several times but DJGPP still serves me well. That it and its 
progeny are DOS apps rather than native Windows has never concerned me.

I also program in CA-Clipper. The Clipper compiler and its progeny 
are also DOS apps. Again, no problem for me.

In its own infinite wisdom, Computer Associates determined to kill 
Clipper despite an active user and developer base.

Many Clipper developers banded together to create an open-source 
alternatives to Clipper called Harbour and xHarbour. Look 'em up.

The Harbour compiler is in fact a C program whose intermediate 
output is again a C program. All of Harbour involves itself in a C 

I can implement Harbour under DJGPP rather than MinGW for example. 
Were you me, which would you choose? Why?

I know where this is posted (comp.os.msdos.djgpp) and expect some bias.
