Turbo C++ version 1.01 as detailed here :


They also offer various versions of Turbo Pascal up to version 5.5 from 
the same site. These are dos based programs, but I have used the 5.5 
Pascal version successfully under Windows XP, and I see no reason why 
the C++ compiler should not work. It is of course another matter 
entirely if it will compile toolshed :) Though I also seem to remember 
that they also offered the command line compiler that went with one of 
the versions of C++ builder as a freebee too, indeed as far as I can 
tell, still available here :


Note, free registration may be required to download the above tools.
