is there an intel compiler? i''ve never heard or it...

i have MSVC++ 6, and it''s very good, i''d recomend it. i haven''t worked with .net, so i don''t know about that...but it should be good.

The Intel Compiler is basically a compiler that optimizes your code, but only for intel machines.

I have intel c/c++ compiler and it its best than vc++ compiler, It optimizes very well (although vc++ compiler optimize good) and uses the latest instructions (MMX/SSE/SSE2). In the other hand its only intel, nothing amd

developer.intel.com/software/products/compilers theres the link to it, thx for the replys. I have MSVC++ 6 standard but Im looking for an optumised compiler, so Im just checking around. I will probly get MSVC++ professional or check out .NET, since I already know MSVC++ and like it. Maybe Visual Studio .NET I can get the academic version from my college book store for 150$, so thats a good deal, just thought I would check out other compilers that arent MS. Again thx for the replys.

The Intel compiler is just a compiler. MSVC is a development environment (code editor, etc). The Intel compiler plugs into MSVC.

MSVC .NET (version 7) is actually fairly good. It even has a folding code editor. It also optimizes code pretty well. Intel will always be half a step ahead on hard-core optimizations, so when time comes to sell version 1.1 of your program, use the profits off 1.0 to buy the Intel compiler and plug it into your MSVC :-)

thx for the replies thats actualy exactly what i was wondering. I thought it was just a compiler but I heard people talking about it as if it was an IDE. Also the MSVC++ that is 100$ is probly the standard one(thats what I paid for mine anyways). I will probly get Visual Studio .NET at the university book store for 150$, academic versions are great deals have all the features of the professional one just can''t sell anything you make with it, of course the best thing is they cost 150$ instead of 1000$:D
