Generating very fast code, very fast.

Yes. However : ============================== Windows 2000 dmc - How to know the version? ============================== ====== C++ code : BEGIN ====== // File ttt.cpp #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { cout << "AAA" << endl; return 0; } ====== C++ code : END ======== ====== Compilation : BEGIN ====== %dmc ttt.cpp Fatal error: unable to open input file 'iostream' --- errorlevel 1 ====== Compilation : END ======== -- ================== Alex Vinokur mailto:alexvn go.to http://up.to/alexvn ==================

Yes, DMC++ works for Windows 2000, too.

To get iostream, you'll need STLport 4.5.3, check
www.digitalmars.com/download/freecompiler.html for instructions.

The most (usefully) responsive vendor in the world (or, at least, in my
universe of experience).

For example, for some research I was doing I had a need for the compiler to
tell me when a C-style cast (as opposed to C++'s static_cast<>,
const_cast<>, dynamic_cast<> & reinterpret_cast<>) was being used. (FYI,
there are a few circumstances where the C-style cast is needed, when doing
certain template techniques, but there are only a very few.)

I banged off a request to Walter, and it was in within a week! You can't say
fairer than that.

The one current complaint with DigitalMars is its relatively old template
support. However, in the vane previously described, Walter is rapidly
bringing it up to conformance, and I have no doubt that it will be better
than some other, more widely known, ones (you know who I'm talking about
...) in the next few months.

The template support is pretty modern now as of 8.29.

Sure. I wasn't meaning to say DM is bad, just that there are some aspects
that'll still kill it readily

As I mentioned to you in email the other week, I'm about to update the
STLSoft libraries and will be focusing, amongst others, on DM, so will be
sending you lots of bug reports very soon. :)
