I am new to c++ programming and I have followed some
courses, but a few things are confusing me. I have to solve
some complex problems (finite element analysis) in the
future and I don´t want to reinvent the wheel, so I
searched for some freely available ´header files´ (right?) to include in my source code. I found some really interesting
files but they seem to be specifically written to compile with
borland 4 compiler. I had allready started working with
dev-c++ and the compiler which comes with it, so now I
am wondering if I should get the borland compiler (another
question: do i have to get version 4 or will the latest
version also do fine?). I don´t get it in the first place: do
you have to write specific c++ code for every different
Thanx for helping me out!
The Borland compilers are very close to the C++ language standard, so if the source code works with it, then it should port fairly easily to most other compilers (provided they are also reasonably close to the standard).
