Greetings all, I'd like to ask you who thinks its worth buying VC++? I have Borlands C++Builder 6, as well as Dev C++ and DJGPP. I find all of these nice to use, especially CBuilder, but I find with CBuilder I am forced to supply tonnes of dll and bcl files along with my own program, which can easily triple the size of it all.
Does VC++ have a way to include such libraries in the executable generated, and do you think it is worth purchasing as a compiler? I notice a LOT of programming tutorials on things such as DirectX and OpenGL all seem to expect the user uses VC++. Any help on this decision would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: Also, I expect it comes with inline assembly or something like that, but can it generate stand alone code (in the way that GCC does), for things such as operating system development?
