It comes with its own improved vi clone, does that count?

Well, there's also this: pvide50.zip (+ src)

EDIT: Just for others reading this, don't forget to read the Watcom FAQ for lots of good info (last updated July 27, 2005). In particular, I just recently rediscovered it (and the IHP_CONV.ZIP .IHP -> .TXT converter, quite useful).

Thanks, however:

- It's desperately obsolete, "updates" from 2005 are very minor

Not very DOS friendly :-(

NOT true :-P

COOL. But 99% of the links are broken :no:

NO :no:

Maybe CC386 would be better for you ? :hungry:

It has an IDE under development (not yet ready) :-)

> (or win32 running under hx rt)?

NO. WATCOM's IDE heavily uses "GUI API", no chance with HX soon :-|

1) get huge (62 Mbyte!) open-watcom-c-win32-1.7.exe
2) 'pkunzip -d' it to C:\WATCOM.
3) create `gowc.bat':
@ECHO OFF
SET WATCOM=C:\WATCOM
SET PATH=%WATCOM%\BINW;%PATH%
SET EDPATH=%WATCOM%\EDDAT
SET INCLUDE=%WATCOM%\H

4) run `gowc.bat'

HX in CC386 or Open Watcom C/C++ for DOS

CC386 3.56 includes HX support (with all necessary files) and is a much smaller download (2 MB!) than OpenWatcom 1.7.
