Smaller C compiler (Announce)

posted by Rugxulo(R) Homepage, Usono, 19.08.2016, 03:10

(This is almost too trivial or redundant to even mention, but alas ....)

Your main Github page points to this (now broken) link:

CWSDPMI: http://homer.rice.edu/~sandmann/cwsdpmi/

But you can still find it on DJGPP mirrors under /current/v2misc/ .

It's also recently been mirrored on iBiblio for FreeDOS.

Another related issue is your wiki section regarding this:

I haven't used 32-bit Windows in several years, since my Vista laptop died, but AFAIK the limit was (default) 32 MB, only adjustable (with SP1) with a registry hack. "Add registry entry 'DpmiLimit' with large enough
value to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WOW ".
