Compiler & Tools Guide - Overview
The Digital Mars compilers run under Win32 as both a GUI application (the IDDE) and as a console application. Code can be compiled and executables built for 32 bit Windows, 32 bit Windows console, 16 bit Windows, 16 bit DOS, and 32 bit DOS (with the addition of the X32 dos extender).
