Because the big 10-pound Borland c++ 4.52 box was the most handy DOS
complier around at the time?
I've used watcom and djgpp before, but that was ages ago and they
weren't laying around my machine at the time.

If you're so pro-DPMI then feel free to go hack on the source. It's
posted in.... um, binary.utilities. imprint.c is the name. A quick dirty
hack from some .bmp/.pcx utilities I apparently make in '95. It almost
works. I started to convert it to 32-bit before x-files came on, but ran
into some struct align probs. Don't feel like downloading all the djgpp
docs to force it to comply. I'm tired. Have fun. :)
