B.3.3 Installation on PC Operating Systems

This section covers installation and usage of gawk on x86 machines running DOS, any version of Windows, or OS/2. In this section, the term "Win32" refers to any of Windows-95/98/ME/NT/2000.

The limitations of DOS (and DOS shells under Windows or OS/2) has meant that various "DOS extenders" are often used with programs such as gawk. The varying capabilities of Microsoft Windows 3.1 and Win32 can add to the confusion. For an overview of the considerations, please refer to `README_d/README.pc' in the distribution.
