    I am sticking with Dev and MSVC++2003 untill the new standards are relased in 2008/9. Then, some of the C/C++ language will change ( but very little ). So, some of the compilers we use now will report small errors. But that is a long way off yet.

    To answer your other question, most use Dev or Microsoft IDE compiler systems. Few use Borland, although Borland Bulilder Studio is quite good. It is all a matter of taste

    It's issues are not very serious. I'll stick to it until I have some serious problems with it.

    Can't you just update your GCC executables and some libraries to get newer standards work?

    That is one question I wish I knew a 100% answer for. I have emailed Bloodshed and they are yet to get back to me about this. If the company are failing to create any more patches for Dev, then I think it will just remain as it is. You could however configure it to run with another compiler, but again, this is still up in the air

    Good Idea, as I said it does work ok, and in general is the best IDE compiler avaliable for windows at the present time ( in my oppionion anyway )

    It is open-source. So if some Delphi programmer would be interested in developing it, he could do it. Until that, we have to wait.

    Also it could be translated into C++, but it would be hard work.

    Unforuntaty I do not understand Delphi. It is much the same as Assembley Language and I do not have the patience for it. But, yes like you said it really is a waiting game I am afraid

    Then you can give me a hand lol!
    It is much harder than C++/C put together. I am not educated enough to learn it, but I may get a book on it, as I have brought up the subject. I'l give bloodshed a run for their money

    > your project does not have enough debugging information, do you want to enable debugging and rebuild your project?

    Are you building with the -g3 option?
    Also... try rebuild, instead of build after you see that message.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I've fixed this problem.

    Choose 'Yes' to compile options/Settings/Linker/Generate debugging information.
    After that , clean and rebuild your project again, and it will contain the debug information.
