Cool How to permanantly install or mount the turboc from Dosbox in ubuntu

I have mount the turboc in ubuntu ,as following..

1)Make a new folder named c in home directory

2)Then i copy the turboc's folder in c folder (Home directory)

3)Go to dosbox and typed followings

a) mount c c
c)cd turboc

4)Now the turboc starts

But when exit from the turboc ,i have to again mount the turboc and have to follow again the above procedure.'

Can i mount the turboc permanantly throught dosbox, that means whenever i clicked dosbox,turboc starts automatically

Awaiting for help;

Forget DOS, forget Turbo C. The 80's are over

Just learn gcc on Ubuntu. Or g++. Or Python, Perl, Java or Lua.

*Anything* but DOS/C.

Make a simple script that mounts it.

Otherwise might have to look into dosbox settings as to why it isn't working like I think it should but who knows. It might be working correctly.

Hi, again -

My earlier advice still stands: if you're trying to use this as a "learning experience" - then don't. Dosbox and TurboC won't teach you anything useful about programming any modern OS - trust me

Nevertheless, jefro is absolutely correct.

The DOS script "autoexec.bat" is a good place to add your command. For example:
echo mount c /home/MYHOME/dosprog >> autoexec.bat
<= this command uses ">>" (DOS file redirection)
to add the line "mount c /home/MYHOME/dosprog" to the bottom of "autoexec.bat".

Substitute your actual directory path for "/home/MYHOME", of course

'Hope that helps .. PSM
