Not sure the debugger from borland c 5.5 is supported.
As far I can remember, borland c 5.5 is just a compiler package, not include a debugger.

I suggest you use MinGW instead.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

A year ago I faced the same challenge, and spent some time digging.

The closest I came to a solution is by searching for "Turbo Debugger", but I think there is a far way to have something working from codeblocks with that.

Since I have only used MinGW and Microsoft for that exact reason.

Ollydbg understands borland debugging format.  On the plus side it is a real debugger.
