    Borland sucks, get Visual C++ or Dev-C++ for free

    Dont listen to him. Nothing wrong with Borland.

    What is your question again-not sure what you are asking.

    Unless you mean-NEW, CONSOLE WIZARD

    Choose C++ and multi threaded. Should get you started. Maximise the window, delete the stuff on it and off you go.

    Enter borland, click on File - New - Text Edit. Enter the code and press Compile. Simple!

    If it is the command line compiler, use Notepad or some other program to code. Then type bcc Myfile.cpp or something (can't remember) in the console.

    Borland Sucks

    For small projects, Borland is cool, and I wish MS learned a few things from Borland. But once your project grows big, Borland starts dying. Eventually, you won't be able to even compile with debug information on (unless you split your application into multiple little parts (which we learned too late)). This limitation has forced us to switch to Microsoft, costing tens of thousands of dollars to the company in wasted time porting code and trying to debug in Borland without debug info.

    Best to learn the MS way, which, for better or worse, doesn't hide as much of the OS nastiness from you. Once you learn the MS way (which has its own problems) you will be able to do the Borland way a lot easier (because it is easier) and use it for the interface for your programs or for small apps, etc.

    Bringing back the dead, huh?

    It's only a two year old thread.

    Edit: Thanks for beating me to the post and making me look like an idiot, prog-bman :P

    Dev-Cpp is good isn't it? The only thing that annoys me about it is that it doesn't auto indent well. It is pretty nice that is has the color changing features that you don't get by standard with MS.

    No. They just make everything extremely proprietary so that if your company ever thinks about switching to a new platform they can't.

    In my opinion, Java is a better choice for big companies for a variety of reasons:

    1) It's cross-platform - you don't have to change anything or compile for the target platform.

    2) It supports a lot of features that make debugging simpler such as modern exception handling (C++ has it but it doesn't seem to get used much) and it points out exactly where the bug is (no wasting time with gdb).

    3) It's extremely easy to make gui applications.

    4) Microsoft didn't assist in the development.
