Actually, version 1.3.8 is binary compatible with version 1.3.0, so the headers of FreeBasic should work for both versions.
The version used for DOS is indeed 1.3.0, I am not aware of more recent ones compiled for DOS.

For running the DOS port of FLTK you have to have set environment variable NANOSCR.
Before launhing the program try this DOS command:
SET NANOSCR=800 600 565

(width, height, RGB bits: 5-red, 6-green, 5-blue /16-bit videomode/)

I have a question for the developers: since I have added the headers to the source code of FreeBasic, is there a way to add the libraries to the DOS distribution, to have it able to work out of the box?
