 Comp.os.msdos.programmer (comp.sys.ibm.pc.programmer until September
 1990) concerns programming for MS-DOS systems. The article "USENET
 Readership report for Jul 94" in news.lists shows 120,000 readers of
 this newsgroup worldwide. Traffic (exclusive of crossposts) was 1981
 articles aggregating 3.1 Megabytes. It ranked as the 79th most popular
 newsgroup.

 More programming topics in the newsgroup focus on C than on any one
 other language, but we are not just for C programmers (see <Q:01.07> [Is
 comp.os.msdos.programmer just for C programmers?]).

 Since most MS-DOS systems run on hardware that is roughly compatible
 with the IBM PC, on Intel 8088, 80188, or 80x86 chips, we tend to get a
 lot of questions and answers about programming other parts of the
 hardware.
