I forgot- it's gcc that supports ansi, NOT Turbo C! I guess that I'll
just have to make an XP partition to check everything that I write in
linux, to be sure that it will compile on their tools. I've already
had problems, with calling libraries such as math.h and conio.h.

Thanks, I got it working! Which compiler is most similar to Borlands
compiler (gcc, intel, SDCC)? I thought that Borland would be one of
the choices, but it is not.
