    Compilers

    I used search and I didn't find a similar post from the past (which suprised me), but I could be wrong.

    Anyway, I was just curious as to what compiler(s) everyone is using and why they chose it/them.

    I started learning with Borland's free command-line compiler. Then my boss bought me MSVC++ 6.0 which is what I use now.

    I downloaded DevC++ earlier tonight just to check it out. I haven't had a chance to mess with it yet, but at least it looks "pretty" .

    You could have atleast had a poll.
    The last time this kind of thread came up it had a poll.
    Just for that I'm not gonna post a reply to this therad.
    If you own a piece of land and there is an volcano on it and it ruins a
    nearby town, do you have to pay for the property damage?

    On the polls on this you can only choose 1 option, I've not seen polls where you can choose many options. Many programmers use more than one compiler and besides it is almost impossible to to list all compilers in the poll. So to me it seems valid not having a poll at a thread like this.

    It surprises me that you haven't found something. In the past there have been threads like this. I'm not sure if it was on on the GD board, but on the C board there sure are threads like this.

    I've used several compilers for several languages, but these are the C/C++ compilers I currently use most:

    GCC: for work
    Keil C: for work
    Visual C++: just for fun and it's nice for Windows programming.

    MS VC++ 6 - every day
    Borland C++ 5.5 - rarely
    Borland Delphi - 2-3 times a week
    MS Visual Basic - 2-3 times a month
    Borland Turbo Pascal - 2-3 times a week

    Visual C++ 7 is out... and why would you want an alpha version?

    I use dev at school beause my version of MSVC 6 is pirated and the school is worried about getting sued. I MSVC++ a little more, but if you're considering cost, dev is much better.
