Turbo c++ installation

I am in need of turbo c++ for my laptop.
I tried looking for download procedure, did find for other distros.
There did not seem to be any for arch or garuda linux( I might've overlooked).
So is there a way so that I can install turbo c++ and compile c++ programs ?

Thank you in advance.

As in the old Borland Turbo C++? That was discontinued 15 years ago.

Is there something newer called Turbo C++?

Linux has other c++ compilers available including gcc/g++. Is there a reason you need turbo c++ specifically?

Can you explain what you are trying to do?


In india turbo c++ is used to teach c and c++

If one has to pass he has to use it :joy:

I had my segmentation faults trying to run the code that works in turbo c++ in gcc


Wasn't that dos-based or did they make a
Windows version?

The old school Turbo c++ from Borland.
The reason I specifically need it is for my school.
They don't seem to use other IDE for compiling c++ programs.
Well if there are alternatives like gcc or g++, please tell me how to install it

There are installers that use dosbox to run turbo c++
On windows


Yeah I did face a similar issue

In that case you should be able to use dosbox here as well, right?

Yeah but need to find the right installer

I once success fully used it under linux just don't recall from where I got that installer.
Probably majorgeeks

It ran under wine and dosbox

So I need to install majorgeeks now?

It a website

I don't know if that's the correct one it was long time ago.

Turbo c++ can be installed using dosbox in Linux. Refer to the article

Process should be similar, the only difference being you have to use pacman instead of apt package manager (obviously, because we are Arch based)


Got it..!!
Was not as difficult as I thought it was.
Thank you

I just downloaded the zip file
Later extracted it and then ran turbo C++ 3.2 msi file
