Can I download Turbo C 1.0?

P: n/a
Hello.

Is there an official website to obtain Turbo C 1.0?

I know that I can download Turbo C 2.0 from Borland,
but I want a smaller version, because I expect that older is smaller.

I want smaller one because I want to put the compiler to 1 floppy disk
with some other marginal space in it.

Could you let me know something?

Thank you.

Check with Borland and/or on the Borland news groups/mailing lists.
However, I suspect that if it is not at the same place as the official
download of 2.0 then probably not.

There is no guarantee that it is smaller.

Check the recent discussion of compilers and the links provided to see
if any of the others are good enough and small enough. A compiler as old
as Turbo C 1.0 almost certainly does not meet the original C standard
(because it pre-dates it) so another C compiler that does not yet meet
the new C standard might be close enough, and the author of lcc-win32
keeps telling us it is small so it might also be small enough. If it
isn't then I would guess the original lcc is probably smaller since it
does not have an IDE.

Yes, this is not really the correct place for your question. The Borland
groups are the right place to ask about Turbo C and the Dos/Windows
groups would be the right place to ask what compilers in general are
available for Dos/Windows.

Oh, and on the site linked in my sig. there are a couple of pages
listing some of the compilers and IDEs available.

Borland did one day provide Turbo C 1.0 and Turbo C 1.5
at the same place where you can find now Turbo C 2.01 (the
museum page of the "community" site, now at CodeGear).
But it didn't stay there for a long time (dunno why), and
I didn't make a copy at that time, as I thought it would
stay there forever (silly me). I think it was around
2002. I have seen the files on other sites since then.
You can try this : http://minilien.com/?l6B3PPfJbT
or look for turboc10.zip or something like this in google.
But please note, I give no guarantee about such files,
nor about lawfulness of using them.

Aside from what others have told you, be aware that Turbo C 1.0 had
some very nasty bugs.
