Turbo C++ for Android – How to Download and Install

Here you will get step by step guide to download and install Turbo C++ for Android platform.

If you are from India and have started learning C/C++ programming from your school days then you have definitely used Turbo C++ compiler. Still many schools, colleges and institutions in India prefer Turbo C++ for teaching students (don’t know about other countries). I do not recommend you to use Turbo C++ compiler for android because it is very outdated (about 23 years old). There is another option i.e. C4droid, it is an awesome C/C++ IDE that supports gcc compiler.

So, lets come to main topic on which I am writing this article. In windows we use DosBox Emulator for running Turbo C++ for Android, in the same way we need an emulator for android platform which is known as AnDosBox. So without wasting much time lets take a look how we can use Turbo C++ for android platform.
 

Turbo C++ for Android – Steps to Download and Install

1. First of all download Turbo C++ for Android from link: http://sh.st/r5mBt
 
 2. It is compressed so you need to extract it. This can be done by any compression tool like Easy Unrar. You can download it from play store for free.
 
3. Now after extracting you will get a folder TC and an apk file AnDosBox.
 
4. Install AnDosBox and move TC folder in your sd card, remember that TC folder must be in sd card not in any other subfolder.
 
5. Now open AnDosBox that you have already installed. It will look same as like DoxBox that is used in windows.
 
6. Enter below lines or commands and press enter after each line. You can get the keyboard by pressing the option button situated at left side of your device.
 
cd tc
cd bin
tc

    Hi guyz.
    I also had the same problem of "unable to change".
    There are 2 types of sd card in kitkat
    1-Internal meomry (sdcard0)
    2-external memory (sd card1)
    so paste the "TC" folder in internal memory (sd card0).
    It should work.
    Mine worked

    Thanks a lot worked on my phone..though the sounds were not working…plz reply if u know how

    If you want to start turbo-c directly,find the file dosbox.conf in your internal memory,open it using a text editor and add the line you type in start
    ie: cd tc
    cd bin
    tc

    note:add these at the very end of the file…(also DO NOT remove anything from the file)
    now turbo-c will start up by itself every time u open the dosbox app..

    Got it, just copy your 'Tc folder to internal memory as well
    As to the external memory .
    Search for 'dosbox.conf' and add
    cd tc
    cd bin
    tc
    To the last lines (open it using text editor ,etc)
    Best of luck:-)

    I installed anDOSbox on my android device and put the TC folder on the internal memory of the phone. The thing is working fine until you work with graphics. When you use graphics.h you need to initgraph() and give the address to the BGI folder right. There I tried all the possible methods to link it to BGI by trying out addresses. But here it says linker error. How to give address to BGI on android device.

    Reply
    1. Admin Post author

      This error is coming because graphics library is not enabled for linking. To enable it go to Options > Linker > Libraries and check the Graphics Library option. I hope this will solve your problem.

    Thanks alot…..Its working nice on my samsung mobile…But still iam not not satisfied…..hence its nice. I’ll explain you clearly how to install and run.STEP 1:First of all you have to download a Turbo c andriod zip file from anywhere from the web.
    STEP 2:You need an Andriod zip pro or any other zip app to extract its files,then you have have to extract the Turbo c andriod file which you have downloaded.
    STEP 3:After extacting u’ll get an apk file and an TC zip file,you have to install that apk and u have to extract the TC zip file also.
    STEP 4:After extracting TC zip file u’ll get some files.Create an TC folder in your internal storage and paste all the files in TC folder which you have extracted from TC zip file.
    STEP 5:Run the apk file which u have already installed and type: cd tc
    cd bin
    tc.
    And then you get the Turbo c++
