c++ - Waiting for the CD

Walter & Jan -

I was on the verge of buying Zortech C++ about the time Symantec took
it over and turned it into a 32-bit Windows product, so I stuck with
Borland for MS-DOS and Windows.

I discovered Digital Mars C/C++ on 17 Apr 2002, downloaded the free
stuff and let it sit in my transfer directory until 30 Apr. About a
week ago I grabbed all the articles in the c++ news groups on your
server and have read most of them. It's really encouraging to see the
dedication and comraderie here.

Being basically cheap I hurriedly tried the 8.27 compiler on a couple
of simple Win32 console programs I had lying around. I thought there
must be some mistake, bcc32 wouldn't even have had time to display its
copyright message, but dmc had already compiled and linked. It was
really impressive.

Paying $25 for the CD was a no-brainer. I'm looking forward to getting
the whole package to try out on some more substantial apps.

VERY WELL SAID!
