Turbo C is one of the earliest compiler for C programming language.It was introduced in 1987 by Borland but even now we can use it for developing programs.Today, C++ programming language is widely used for developing softwares and programs and C language is considered kind-of outdated.
However, most educational institutions and universities teach C language for students to get their first time experience with computer programming and coding.But the problem is the original Borland Turbo C compiler is not easily available on internet.If you search for turbo c on google, you're most likely to end up with some other compilers.So for the sake of students and those who are interested in C programming, I'm uploading the original Turbo C from Borland.
P.S: Turbo C works with Windows XP and earlier versions only. Click here To download Turbo C for Windows 7 or later.
