At the moment I'm trying to learn C++. It's quite difficult and confusing when seeing all the things for the first time :sad:
But that's not the problem (OK, it's a problem but not the one the question is about :D): Which is better? Microsoft Visual C++ or Borland C++ Builder?
I hope there are some experienced programmers in here, so I'm expecting much answers ;). At least some of the Plugin-Coders should be able to give me an advice:)

MSVC's IDE is unmatched, IMO, but some say it's compiler is lacking..

If you've got the latest service pack, it's fine, I prefer MinGW myself.

I don't want to cut your fun off, but depending on what you have to do, Delphi is a more friendly language, yet very, very powerful.

I mean, if you're going to write something like a plugin or an emulator, I think it's quite a good language if you're searching for the best 'sacrifice'/benefict.

However, it's all a matter of preference. If it's C++ you're trying to learn, that's wonderful!! It sure is the most enhanced language there is. You can basically have your computer make your everyday dinner for you. ;)

[edit] My vote goes to Borland's.

Hmm, didn't Microsoft release (or are planning to release) a newer version of C? (I believe it's called C#, or `C Sharp') Does anyone have any information about that?

c# is ms latest language which they develop to take over java ...... according to those who has taken a look at the language,they said it is very similar to java. You can get more information about this language at microsoft homepage.

Thanks for the recommendations.
I'm already using the free Borland C++-Compiler and I'm pretty satisfied with it. But is their environment is as good as the M$ one?
