 BA> Turbo C++ for OS/2.  Haven't used it much lately, though.

 BA> I also have Visual Age C++ for OS/2 around here someplace.
     Sad to say, when I had OS/2, I had no OS/2 languages.....
     Now that I don't have OS/2, I have various Cross-platform
     compilers that will make OS/2 apps.  Something I've allways
     wished I would have been able to do is had either Borland Pascal
     or Borland C++ with the libraries to make family mode apps using
     stanard DOS tools....  Granted, you probably didn't get much 
     benifiets from making a family mode app, but I used to prefer
     having all family mode apps when I used to run OS/2 2.1....
     Especially when running a DOS based BBS via Vmodem.... 
     I'd have OS/2 Console windows open and DOS windows open, and my
     utilities that where family mode would run no matter which window
     was open, where as the OS/2 would open a  new window and run the 
     app.... Just a little annoying thingy that made the family mode apps
     better...
