    not really. i haven't used vs or vc++ or vc++.net yet, so I'm not really sure. As for right now, gcc/g++ covers my programming needs, and its free, so can't beat the price.

    Definately not. The visual c++ compiler is actually one of the worst compilers out there in terms of compliance. I'll take gcc over that crap any day!

    Supposedly the next version is going to be standard compliant although i will believe it when i see it for myself but the good news is that andrei alexandrescus awesome library Loki can be compiled by vis c everett RC1. As far as im aware this is the first compiler that can compile loki in its original form completely with even gcc unable to cope with some parts of it. Loki has since been ported to visual c.net and gcc.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Whoa, hold on there. I thought the Visual C++ compiler was considered the best one.

    Can you guys give me specific examples of its flaws?

    It has a LOT of problems with compiling and linking templates, especially when combined with OOP.

    I've never heard of Comeau C++. Is that new? How do you know it's the best? Are you just guessing?

    it's the most compliant compiler out there. they have a test online compiler at www.comeaucomputing.com It's very reliable and even supports export and templated templates.

    One of the many Microsoft Buildings is actually right across the street, though I really don't see how this pertains to the thread
