To tell the truth, I did most of it in vi, and then only rebooted to test and
debug at the end. :-) The *real* pain is having to load turbo C, retrieve
the options (every bloody time!), compile the OS (which takes ages without
buffered i/o - It's only XINU, but on a 200 MHz machine I could go and make
coffee and come back and it'd still be going), quit turbo c, link the OS
libs, load tc with the test program (remembering to retrieve the options
again!), compile the test program, quit tc, and then run the test program.
Notice bug. Repeat.
Turbo C has a built in editor, but its worse that edit.com (but, ok, edlin
would suck more) :-)
Of course real men do it all with toggle switches on a front panel... ;-)
