|Programming in C on DOS:|
Information on programming in C for DOS. This includes some of the strange needs of segmented memory programming, like dealing with far and near pointers, and intermixing them without causing problems.

Here is a little bit about the biggest difference between C on real mode x86 systems and C on almost all others. This will at very least get the wheels turning.
