Bloat compiler

" Is there a way to not include the DPMI, and just output a standard DOS, (MZ,) exe? " It IS done so by default. But you need the external file CWSDPMI.EXE. This is BAD.

VESA graphics

Will FBC support hi-res & hi- & true-color graf-modes ??

Modes 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024 with 8, 16 24 and 32 bits
(as long as supported by graf-card of course) ???

I found out that this is a big problem in many prog-languages,
many of them do not support more than 8 bits :-(
