    It looks like this page has it - The download link worked for me: https://borland-c.software.informer.com/5.5/

    Is there a specific reason you need the Borland 5.5 compiler though? That's a fairly old one. If you're on Windows, Microsoft has a free edition of Visual Studio. Microsoft even makes a Linux version of Visual Studio now.

    Microsoft makes a version of Visual Studio Code for linux, which is just
    an editor. Visual Studio itself is available only on Windows and macOS
    (though the macOS is very new and I think based on mono).

    I'm aware of Visual Studio Code and have used it before. I must have forgot the full Visual Studio wasn't available for Linux. I may have been thinking of Visual Studio for Mac.

    I will use to compile Worldgroup/Major BBS modules, unfortunately the
    source code wont build with newers compilers like gcc, wattcom, etc...


    Thanks!

    Check out themajorbbs.com. Their "Project Phoenix" is, for all intents and purposes, redoing the whole MBBS/WorldGroup so that it can compile and be used on modern platforms. They are actively running it in Windows and are very soon going to port to Linux. Elwynor Technologies (elwynor.com) offers a number of modules that are also being ported to the new v10 code.

    Check them out.

    That sounds interesting.
