c++ - Old Symantec 6.0 + Digital Mars

Several years ago I bought a Symantec C++ 6.0 compiler to learn programming. And
now I am a happy owner of a Digital Mars CD (also to learn how to program, i'm a
slow learner <g>).

So my question is is there anything useful from the Ancient compiler, I might
want to save, or should I just chuck it?

Thanks,
Chris

I guess that really depends on what you want to do with the compiler.
I have not used any ancient compiler (well, that ancient) for years...

I have all kinds of ideas<g>. Seriously though, I am wanting to
develop/experiment with all types of programming, IE: win32 console, MFC gui,
dos real mode and extended. OS/2 (if it  is still possible) and mixed mode c +
assembly language.

I am working on getting a computer science degree via distance learning and will
do lots of experimenting. 

Thanks 
Chris

Symantec C++ 6.0 sometimes will bring a good price on Ebay.

anything I can't do with the DM compiler, except work in a DOS environment. With that said I'm glad to see the compiler being developed again, and I'm glad that it's lots cheaper to buy this time. Thank you Walter, Chris

Surprisingly the ProtoGen RAD tools in SC++ 6.0 does contain
interesting stuff. Some of the code generated are actually quite
intelligent. I did "pinched" some of the routes generated because
they were both 16-bit and 32-bit compatible. Sort of hard to
write it yourself from scratch.

Well, perhaps I will keep it around for experimenting then.

Thanks for the info, Karl!
