    Absolutely.

    [edit]
    It's considered like one of the best by the professionnal programmers, more specifically because of its mighty debugger.
    This was fine, but about Visual C++ 6. Sorry for misleading.

    It's considered one of the best by YOU.
    I have worked for 2 companies both using BCB and I've never seen so many bugs in one IDE, especially when projects get large. In the first company everybody including me was always whining about crappy builder and then I came at the second company I said nothing and waited. The first day at the job bingo! crappy builder here, buggy standard library remarks there. It's really NOT considered a good product

    My bad. I misread the original post. I was thinking about Visual C++ 6.

    I will edit my post.

    Haha. You know that I actually got mad, that's how frustrated I am with BCB. VC6/7 is much much better

    BCB? you mean Borland C Builder? Well I'm personally don't work in the busyness just yet, but everyone tells me that borland is much better than VC.

    Can you please tell me what kind of bugs do you know on BCB?

    I hear a lot of ppl putting down VC++ as well. What's wrong with that one too?

    VC++ is gonna be $100+
    I dont care how serious about programming you are, sometimes thats just not in most peoples price range.

    With that said... I will suggest the MinGW studio. Thid IDE is free and it is nearly a clone of the MSVC++ ide. The debugger is "ok" and the compiler is gcc (g++).

    But remember, its FREE!

    Hi all,

    Among Borland C++ Builder, VC++ and Dev C++, which one is suitable to write C program for networking on Windows 2000?

    And, can that C program source code be easily deployed to PIC Microcontroller later?

    Thanks for your advice.

    Any of them.

    As long as it is standard C (using the C-language core only) , chances are that this program is portable.

    Note that networking is not part of standard C.

    I installed VS.net 2003. There are MFC, ATL, .NET and Win32 types of projects under VC++.

    For network programming by C language, should I choose Win32 kind of project?

    And, how can I know what kind of compiler, e.g. gcc, to be used in VS.net?

    > Note that networking is not part of standard C.

    Do you mean I need to write my own library? If so, yes, I am planning to write the library.

    Thank you for your kind advice.
