Screen shot of Jingle Bells's Win16 port

Jingle Bells was an academic project at the end of the first semester of my first computer science class. The assignment was to visually and audibly render a traditional December holiday song using Pascal, and I chose to implement the Jingle Bells song.

The original version runs on DOS as a text console program and uses the PC speaker for audio. After writing ScreenWindow, I ported Jingle Bells to the C programming language and the audio to MIDI, effectively modernizing the project with a Windows interface. That Win16 version was later recompiled into a Win32 version using EzMIDI32.
