Please note:

Full screen: press [Alt] + [Enter]

When you exit from the DOSBox [precisely when you unmount the virtual drive where Turbo C++ 3.0 has been mounted] all the files you have saved or made changes in Turbo C++ 3.0 will be copied into the source directory (the directory which contains TC folder)

Don’t use shortcut keys to perform operations in TC because they might be a shortcut key for DOSBox also. E.g. [Ctrl]+[F9] will exit DOSBOX rather running the code.

 

How to use [Ctrl]+[F9] (“Run”) without closing down DOSBox

1. press [ctrl]+[F1] while running Turbo C++ to view/change the mapper commands.

2. click on “ShutDown”,

3. then (click) on “del”,

4. then (click) “add”

5. and then press “q” on your keyboard. Then click “mod1″ in the lower left corner to close DOSBox with [ctrl]+[q]

6. click on “save”

 

Now you can use [ctrl]+[F9] in Turbo C++ as usual and [crtl]+[q] to close DOSBox.

 

You can do the same with [ctrl]+[F1] (for topic search) by clicking on “mapper” and changing the command as described above.

 

To reset the mapping, just run the “Reset KeyMapper”-file in the DOSBox folder.
