OK, I downloaded the EGCS 1.1 files, and managed to compile my program.
It works, but it's 625K, and horrifically slow.
Is there anything I can do to remedy this?
For reference, the DOS executable is about 20K, while the DPMI and OS/2
executables are about 80K. The DOS one, compiled with BC++ 3.0, is
actually faster than the Win32 version. The DPMI and OS/2 versions (DGJPP
and VAC++, respectively) are both about ten times faster than the DOS
version, so 10-15 times faster than the Win32 version.
