Is the name of my favourite programming font. Fixed width of course, crossed zeros too.

Didn't cost me anything to download, I just remember spending an afternoon looking for another font because I was bored. Dina was the best I managed to find.

Just thought I'd share it with you.

Noes. If I can be arsed to wade through millions of pages again I'll take a look for a TT version. Or you could have a look, and link it here. :)

You might be able to find something similar, in TrueType here. (http://www.proggyfonts.com/index.php?menu=download)

Courier New? Eww. I used to use it all the time but it gets boring to look at. :p

Dude, syntax colored Courier New, size 8, keeps me going for hours on end. Gotta love Code::Blocks.

MSVC 2003 + Dina 9pt + Music > Code::Blocks + Courier 8pt
:p

9pt? 8pt?!? You people are intent on going blind. Just remember when you're driving that the dark blob on your bonnet is what's left of an old person. :rolleyes:

It's not bad unless you're trying to read it from the other side of the room. 1152x864 with 8pt is too small, 10pt is too big. IMO.

Dina was indeed pretty neat! Thanks!

Code::Blocks + Dina 8pt :)

Fixed width of course
I've never really understood why fixed width is required for programming fonts. See Stroustrup's" The C++ programming language"

Well it's not a requirement, it's just I find it easier to layout my source code when it's all "griddy".

I keep meaning to get TC++PL but forget about it when I have the money :(
