As its name suggests, TurboC++ Simulator provides you with a great tool that you can use to simulate Borland C / C++ on Windows. The predecessor of the much more advanced C++Builder, Borland C is an integrated development environment for writing programs in the C++ programming language.
Using TurboC++ Simulator, you can install Turbo C on your machine and configure the way it runs. The application provides a simple interface, enabling you to run a default or a custom installation of Turbo C.
Beginner users can use the simple screen, which comprises a single button for installing the Turbo C fixed application, but professional users can access the 'Advanced Screen', which offers a lot more options for configuring the simulator's behavior. For instance, you can either install the Turbo C patcher or fix an already existing installation, as well as select the installation location.
The simulator allows you to activate or disable the full screen mode, change the output screen type (surface, overlay, opengll, openglnb and Ddraw are the available options) and the resolution. Additionally, you can keep the aspect ratio, choose the process priority, enable double buffering, auto lock the mouse and adjust its sensitivity.
Once the installation is complete, a shortcut to Turbo C appears on your desktop and all you have to do is double-click it to run the simulator and start writing and compiling code.
The application comes with an option for wiping out the simulating engine and all the TCPs settings, which means that you can remove Turbo C and its settings using the simulator.
In conclusion, TurboC++ Simulator is a handy tool designed to help C++ programmers who prefer to work in the old Borland C / C++ development environment.
