I need to support a PROSE/FortranCalculus user-friend, Philbru, from long ago (continuous user since 1975 CDC timesharing PROSE), who wants to go the next step with DOSbox in supporting over 12,000 interested end-users and developers who have downloaded FC demos since December 2016 from his website, FortranCalculus.info, which only contains my FC distribution from 1990, employing 16-bit real-mode graphics libraries.
My current version is FC2, running on 64-bit Ubuntu Linux. We are resurrecting this legacy technology in a Perl menu-based IDE scaffold, in preparation for an open-source refactoring webinar campaign to be mounted next on the Cloud 9 IDE and/or Codeanywhere platforms. First we want to use DOSbox to get the flywheel started, as this is comfortable for his interested DIY modeling folks.
I'm going to install Strawberry Perl and Padre on Windows7 for this porting task. Do I need to install them inside DOSbox?
