I installed version 1.9.4 for windows and compiled my program.
It appears to work perfectly, and, amazingly, the size of the
executable was reduced from 63k to 23k!

To give the windows version a more rigorous test, I compiled
a DOS filter program I wrote as a partial replacement for
ANSI.SYS.  It failed to display ANSI pictures properly;
it seems that BIOS calls don't work.  (I can't use the CRT unit
because piping can't be used with it.)

So I will use the windows version most of the time and will
fall back to the DOS version only when BIOS calls are needed.

Thanks to all of you for your helpful comments.
