I am trying to make a decision on a C compiler to use in an MS-DOS
environment to communicate with the Oracle DBMS. They tell me that they
support either a Microsoft 6.0 or Lattice C interface, and I am trying to
commit one way or the other. I had planned to go with Microsoft C 6.0 until
I recently heard some disgruntled users' complaints.

Does anybody have some experience with either of these compilers/companies
that might help me make this decision? The issues are:

- Must interface to ORACLE on MS-DOS
- Must be able to distribute (and support) the compiler in Europe
- Must be able to run on a system with 150 MB of disk and 4 MB of ram
- Must not exceed $1000.00 purchase price

Thanks in advance.
