If Borlands compiler is so much better, why do the majority seem to be using VC around here? If Borland is so much better, why do companies that develope for Windows seem to be using VC more than Borland?


Your answer is simple and with a question to think about , WHY MOST OF THE PEOPLE USE WINDOW AND NOT LINUX ?

See look this way. Windows was created great , now it''s been sold and 2001 now people don''t like microsoft anymore. They want to put them down. Vc++ was created , now it''s been sold and 2001 now people still like it. WILL IT FOLLOOW THE LAST STEP ? FALL DOWN ? hummm... seems pretty much that it will since it''s from the so hated MICROSOFT right ?

Tell me why we should use assembly when we can get the same results using C++ and not having to spend nearly as much time. Only very time critical pieces of code need to be hand coded in assembly, and even then its quite easy to actually make it slower if you dont know what you''re doing.

I have yet to see a reason from you on why people should be using Borland for game programming. Nobody needs any of those features that VC "supposedly" doesnt have to code games.

Thank you, Maximus. That''s kind of what I was getting at

"Borland is better because Borland''s web site says so". Hmm ....

Because it has greater compatibility and does what they want perhaps? Because they dont have the time to download linux? There are different reasons why people use different operating systems.

Big Mac Vs Whopper, Coke Vs Pepsi, and Microsoft Vs Borland.
People its all a matter of preference. Use what ever compiler or api that gets the job done better for "you" and stop trying to impose something on someone else. If people can program then they "should" have the logic reasoning to figure out what is the best tool for them.

As Always do what ever makes you happy, hell even program in cobol if it floats your boat.

How does Borland make life better? It adds a couple features that would never be used in developing a game.

VC has MFC for tools (VC DOES have visual design of dialogs/forms/whatever you call them), and for the actual game code you have your code editor. You dont need RAD for game development, nor do you need all that fancy database or "Drop-in Internet Protocol Components". We have DirectPlay and WinSock instead for that. We dont need XML in our games, nor ISAPI and CGI, nor any language translation tools.

So these features that supposedly make Borland better would go completely unused anyway.

VC++ and Bordland can''t do anything the other can''t do for a game, it all depends on the skill of the programmer. Did you ever hear of ridilin and did you ever tell your parents thankyou for feeding you even thought your such a stupid person?

Ummm, because Borland users have horrible grammar and can''t spell words like ''why'' because they are so ''133t''.

btw, GCC all the way.

This Ladys and Gentlemen is our future, the future of Earth rests in the hands of kids with terrible math, grammer, and faulty brains. This is an example of life at its lowest point. Be all that you can be people but for god''s sake or whatever your religion DON''T become like this person, don''t let it happen to you.

Oh don''t worry about that. If you want me to write a good grammar i can. And also i have Geometry Honors, Straight A''s in Math, Also don''t worry about it. The only thing that i''m look for is a good IDE and i think that the people can''t help me.

Metal, why did you join gamedev.net? Did you join to start flame wars? Or did you join to acquire and or submit information on becoming a better game programmer? I haven''t the slightest idea whatsoever this post has to do with anything. Have you compiled something and compared speed and performance tests and what not with both compilers? Do you even know how to program? What are you trying to accomplish here? I think you should go read the FAQ. I think if you feel that Borlands compiler is so great, that you should be using it right now instead of spreading hearsay. Ok, now go to the park and ride your shiny new bmx that mommy bought you for passing 5th grade.

Shotokan hit the nail on the head. Metal did your teacher ever hit you for spelling sentences like "WOW ! come down charlie. K this TOPIC stop''s here . Since nobody can HELP to chose a right compiler.U don''t care cuz u already know, but when u din''t it was something like that. Remeber this word. !!!!"
K isnt a word U isnt a word cuz isn''t a word, remember what words to me all your letters are giberish. Go find something useful to do, go make friends and don;t act like you just acted on this message board.
