A precompiled DLL version of CFITSIO is available for IBM-PC users of the Borland or Microsoft Visual C++ compilers in the files cfitsiodll_3xxx_borland.zip and cfitsiodll_3xxx_vcc.zip, where '3xxx' represents the current release number. These zip archives also contains other files and instructions on how to use the CFITSIO DLL library.

The CFITSIO library may also be built from the source code using the makefile.bc or makefile.vcc files. Finally, the makepc.bat file gives an example of building CFITSIO with the Borland C++ v4.5 or v5.5 compiler using older DOS commands.
