What compiler might have been used to compile->
 
 
a game called Cartooners (by Electronic Arts)?

The program itself states it's from 1988/1989. When viewed with a suitable program it clearly refers to the Microsoft Runtime library from 1988.

My copy of Microsoft C 5.x produces executables with a similar looking reference except those refer to a runtime library from 1987. That's one year too early, and Microsoft C 6.x was from 1990.

What do you think might have been used to compile Cartooners?
