For MS-DOS basic, QB45 with Ethan Winer's assembler libraries could put the fear of God into many of the other offerings at the time.  :tongue:
Hutch,
I used the assembler from QuickC with Quick Assembler to give performance to QB45

And MS QuickC wasn't an optimizer C compiler.
I have MS QuickC, but i started with Zortec C++
May the source be with you

Back then, with crt's, it always amazed me how much asm code you could cram in between the horizontal and vertical blank interrupts.
I wonder if the dos emulators allow that??
