    These pretty much cover what is freely available.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Any particular reason you're looking for the Borland compiler? As you can see by the link, the free version is almost 8 years old.

    Maybe lucifreek is a connoisseur of old compilers - but I somehow don't think that's the truth either.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    Why not get Dev-C++ or Code::Blocks or MSVC? http://cpwiki.sourceforge.net/Integr...nt_Environment

    Angry

    I was looking for something that would resemble bolrand C++ Builder 5 . I already have dev C++, i was wondering if there is a free compiler with a fancy click and drop command button, versus writing three f&#%ing pages to create a form with button on it. By no means am i looking for free old compilers, and no i am not a connosseuir of those... like I ain't got nothing better to do but to install outdated sh%t on my PC

    Well, excuse us for not being able to read your mind.

    I think MSVC might have what you're looking for, but I don't know for sure. You'd have to ask Elysia.

    I'm not sure C++ is what you want, then. Maybe try C# or some other .NET language.

    There are dialog resources, combined with the proper framework that could be made to work reasonably as the OP wants.
    MFC works well with resources, but I'm not sure what other frameworks there are that do.
