    compiler/editor/ide debate

    what's your setup? why is it superior to all of ours?

    Compiler - Borland 5.5 (free)
    Editor - Code-Genie

    It's free, (code genie was like 25$ to register actually) and it's ANSI C compliant and it's Borland (always good support when needed)

    Internet Does Not Exists.
    Create?

    [yes] [no]

    Yeah, i have VIDE as well, but I like creating the internet with CodeGenie. Of course I created it but CodeGenie froze up.. i guess that kinda thing could take a while.

    I tried shrinking it to just the box but i'm getting upload errors now. (i addressed them in the to webmaster thread)

    Talking

    Microsoft VC++ 6.0
    Borland 5.5 + VIDE

    Use both, each has its strength.

    MSVC++ 6.0. I'd be lost without the MSDN cd's.

    i've got codewarrior.. eww..

    i hated codewarrior, it's missing almost every non-ANSI C or C++ header available. You have iostream fstream and the stl but you don't have any of the extras microsoft and borland usually supply. (conio.h, windows.h, ddraw.h, etc.)

    wheee

    I use MSVC for most things, but I also use DJGPP (which I guess I should make an IDE for that as well...) hmm....I had bloodshed for a while but I didn't really like it too much. I wanna rty codewarrior (like a demo) just for the heck of it. I had some old DOS version of Borland for a while that I didn't like (I think it was Turbo C) maybe I'll ty 5.5 now...

    hehe

    hmmm....why don't you cut your thing so it's just the messagebox, then save it as a jpeg? It should cut down the size well.

    microsoft VC++ 6.0 -- MFC apps only...
    borland C++ 5.02 -- my first compiler...IMHO junk. i haven't tried newer versions of Borland, but 5.02 is SLOW.

    and:

    gcc -- my favorite because it's what I really learned on.
    THIS IS NOT JUST A CHRONICLING OF THINGS WE HAVE DONE IN THE PAST BUT OUR RISE TO POWER.

    I have MSVC++ 6.0 (standard edition), with its built in compiler.
    Symantec 7.0(did anybody know Symantec used to make compilers?), and IDE
    Mingw GCC + Scintilla/SciTE
    DJGPP + DevC++
    RedHat 7.0 + GCC + Emacs/Vi

    My setup is best because of its versatility. I'm trying to get Cygwin, but the installation is being a b****. It won't let me connect to the places from which I need to download the packages.
    All generalizations are false

    It has all those headers there just in odd places try Search/Find their there..


    >Want to try CodeWarrior....

    i use it its better than MSVC or Borland and its much tighter...

    Code size i about half of MSVC's when optimized for speed in release.

    >Anyone here use it ?
    >can you use it for directx/mfc as easily as msvc?

    i don't use Direct-X but id say it shouldn't be to hard...
    MFC must be done by hand as far as i know, there are a few starter projects pre made.

    i has no match for the MSDN though...

    UGHUGHUGH

    Oh, man! how can you use V IDE? IMO it's JUNK I mean, it tries to format things for you, and first off, I think it has an ugly way of formatting, and secondly when I tried to fix it, it started deleting the last letter of w/e I was typing!!! ughughugh!! *pukes at the thought of V IDE*
