DOS-based IDE?

Post by Harry Potter » Wed Jul 11, 2012 8:01 am

Give me your honest opinion:

* Is there a calling for a DOS-based IDE? I want to do one for one or more cross-platform C compilers.
* If so, I'm working under VBDOS Pro 1.0. I can use and exit to batch files to run the compilers and emulators, but how do I create the edit control? I'd also like to get a SVGA text mode. If the control isn't likely, I'll just use another system to create the IDE. I don't mind a lack of SVGA text support.

I checked the site. RHIDE seems to have a limited scope (i.e. only for DJGPP and some Linux systems. I'd be better off in Win32 rather than DOS, though.
