Turbo C has a lot of special features designed for handling interrupts
on the PC.  Terry Lambert and others at Century Software (SLC UT) have
written quite a bit of polling code for MS-DOS while developing 'Term'
for DOS.  Try sending mail to him; he might be able to give you some
pointers without giving away Century's code and making his boss angry.


Tell him Wes sent you.
