Question about IDE.
at the moment i use Visual C++ 6.0 (Free Book Version), but now want
buy a Professional IDE, but i don't know wich.
What is the better alternative, Borland C++ or Visual Studio?
I also want that the header files graphics.h, colors.h,
and the sound() funtions are included, because i have
many programs (downloaded from programmersheaven)
wich don't work because i don't have the needed header
files and functions.
I realized that the only way for me to learn, is to play
with other code and therefore it's important that my IDE
knows C++ and it is able to compile and execute every
program i find in the Internet.
So please can anyone give me a commendation?
> able to compile and execute every program i find in the Internet.
You will never find this because many programs are platform dependent, even those old programs which depend on graphics.h which you seem to be keen on.
Anything using graphics.h is at least a decade old from being a viable answer, so you should really treat them as "for information only".
Learning a modern graphical API will enable you to write much better programs (more visual appeal), using modern compilers.
Also understand there is a difference between an IDE and a compiler. The IDE just brings the editor, compiler, debugger and help files closer together. The "C++ aware" editor for example just knows bascally to display "class" say in a different colour. The real work is in the compiler, and it's compiler and OS specific libraries.
