Compilers, IDEs...bears....oh my!

Recommended Posts

I''ve recently read some posts that, while MSVC has a better IDE, Borland''s compiler is somewhat faster, more optimized, etc. (Subjective, I know, but...) Is it possible to use the Borland compiler with the MSVC IDE or anything like that? Oh, and if that was a totally ridiculous question that made less sense than asking if Homer Simpson is stupid, be sure to tell me! -Normie "But time flows like a river... and history repeats." ... So...what about beaver dams?

Technically, yes, you can use pretty much any compiler with Visual C++. You get the ability to set custom build steps, pre-link steps, post-link steps... etc. Now, if you''re asking how to do it, I have no idea But I''m almost certain it can be done, and probably without too much trouble too, once you work it out.

Write the Code using VC++. When I want to compile I simply load the file in a project using Borlands ide(this is assuming you have C++ builder).

But when I only had the command line tools(downloadable from Borland''s website) I simply took a couple of hours to read about makefile and used them. Makefile documentation is also downloadable for free from Borland''s website.
