How to install Turbo C++ on ubuntu linux...??

Turbo C++ is C/C++ compiler developed by Borland and is used to develop c, c++ programs and applications.
It has a compiler,basic editor and a debugger. The explorer version is freeware whereas for professional version you have to pay a small price.It is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment ).

The IDE is very popular because of its simple interface,small size,good
manuals and fast compile speed.It  is one of the many IDEs available to
program in C/C++ on Windows.Although GCC is available on linux but
some students or developers still use Turbo C++ to write their C++
programs and want to use it on linux ,well this post is for them.

To run Turbo C++ in Ubuntu(Linux) u should have two things:

1.Turbo C++ setup
   If you have the setup then excellent but if you don't then download it
   from here.

2.DOSBox Emulator
   If you have it installed on your system the good but if you don't go to
   Applications-->Ubuntu Software Center and search for DOSBox and
   install the emulator.

Now follow these steps...

1.Extract the rar file you downloaded from the link above and you'll
   get a setup folder.
   Move the folder to your home folder(Places-->Home Folder).

2.Open the DOSBox emulator

Thank you for the instruction :)

But I've got a problem which annoys me. The problem is that reference is missing in My C++ so I can not run programs which need this reference.

Do you have any tip for this issue?

Thanks in advance
