    smaller compilers ?

    Dear all~

    my soft is BCB6~
    I noticed that my compiler is too huge, I almost could not bear it when compiling codes.
    as known I am fresh to C++, thus maybe a smaller compiler would more suitable for me, where could I get some free if possible ?


    Regards~

    Well Dev-C++ is fine when you take all the toolbars off, it is probably okay when there not too, but its fine for me.

    G++ (or more specifically, mingw) is the compiler behind Dev C++... which is just a visual front end for editting the files and interfacing with the compiler.
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    For toy programs, pcGrasp is AWESOME. Heck, I use it to do indentation on my Win32 API progs.

    Automatic indentation and control structure diagramming, an an extraordinarialy slim inteface that works well with DJGPP.

    It's big brother, jGrasp, is the opposite. Running jGrasp is like having your compiler working in the background all the time. But it has some very useful features. Function scope folding, advanced control structure diagramming, and some useful features.

    Get it from the Unversity of Auburn college of Engineering. Its a beauty.

    did you try bcc55 command line? it's not that easy to link, but if you're not using multiple source files you might like it.

    Oh, just realized I wasn't too clear on something.

    Neither of the programs I mentioned is a compiler, they are GUIs for command line compilers, I find they both work well with DJGPP, although they can be set up with mingw and cygwin is you want.

    The lack of a resource editor is irritating, but the auto indentation and diagramming is great.

    BTW:

    Does anyone know of any addins to Dev-C++ that do indentaiton and CSD?

    Just use Visual C++

    LB3: N >= Tired : N <- Sleep;

    One of the ones I don't think anybody else uses here is Borland C++ 5.5 with the GUI Microride Enigma. Enigma can easily be set up for many C++ compilers and is loose so that you can really set it up for almost any command line compiler, for almost any language.
