View Full Version : Borland's Turbo C++ appearence

07-17-2004, 03:09 PM
A few friends and I have been arguing about what font colors Borland's Turbo C++ had by default. I know this is a mundane topic, and I forget how we even got on the argument, but it's been bugging us.

The only part we still argue about is the color of numbers. I remeber them being a light blue, the same color as characters and strings. A friend insists that they were a magenta color. We would check this out for ourselves, but we can't find the compiler anywhere. I figured somebody around here has got to remember/have it somewhere. Specificly, we're looking for 4.5 and higher, although I remember them all having the same default colors.

Thanks in advance.

Well, I've only used 3.1, and I think the numbers were magenta on it by default. I don't really remember too well, because I last used it when I was like 11 to edit Wolf3D's source code.

It depends on where you type it... typing a number after // just made it pale blue... but elsewhere it was magenta...

you can download Borland Turbo C++ 1.1 from their website in the Archives section...it takes awhile to find, but it will answer your questions.

He was looking for 4.5 and after. I have it, and I think vasanth is right. Of course, you can change the colors, so if this results in you losing a bet, I'd be happy to modify my version and give you a screenshot :)

all i could find was version 1.01 to download
and everything is yellow! there is no color coding at all!

heh, no bets were made, just petty arguing. Thanks for the heads up DavidP, I'll go check that out. Thank you to everyone else as well.
