Ah, now that rings bells ....  It's all a very long time ago, but I 
think my Power-C was able to accept either format and not complain.  I 
still have my Power-C carefully preserved on a CD.  I'll have to dig it 
out sometime and try it under DosBox emulator.  That seems to run most 
ancient DOS stuff.  I think my version of Power-C came on a 5-1/4" 
floppy and would run from there.  I seem to remember using it before I 
had a computer with a hard-drive, just two 5-1/4" floppies.  Those were 
the days!

Regards,        Barry.
