Alternative win32 compiler? And linking asm libs?
I have read the Programming FAQ, to no avail. I have been using Dev-C++ and MinGW for a month now, and lately I have been very unhappy with MinGW. Firstly, I am not currently interested in portability, and MinGW is stripped down, as is DJGPP. I want to use conio, since there are almost no textmode libs for MinGW. Secondly, I am happy with the Intel syntax for inline asm, which I've used in Object Pascal consistently before switching over to C++.
1) Is there an alternative win32 compiler? I have VC++ 6.0 but I don't understand why it spits out 2megs of random files in my directory when I want to create one console program for an exercise in class. I just want the .exe not all those project files ... Would that CBuilder 5.5 and Quincy IDE be a good choice?
2) I have TASM 5, it took me a while to learn how to link these obj's to QB and then to Pascal, can I create .obj's and .libs with this and link them with C Builder? How would I accomplish this task?
Thanks a lot!
