c++.idde - IDDE from Symantec CD + DMC++

Hi

I am a registrered owner of Symantec C++ 7.2x - 7.5. Before that I had my
company buying Symantec C++ 6.0 and before that Zortech C++ 3.x...

I was happy to see the existance of DMC++, and I therefor really would like
to play around with it, integrated into the IDDE from my SC 7.5x.

Can I just copy the contents of DM to SC directory structure to make it work
? (Thereby overwriting some tools in sc\bin, files in sc\include and sc\lib
... ).

What action do I need to take to make them work together ?

Yes a makefile and VIM is a perfect match, but for nostalgic reasons... (Who
came up with the crazy idea to deliver MicroEmacs on the CD anyway ? )

If this turns out to be a fun 'playground' I guarantee that I'll buy the
DMC++ 9.x with the updated IDDE, Debugger and with support of STLPort 4.5x
 or greater ).

Best regards

The compiler choked on template parameter ... ( bool __threads,... )

compiling it from the command line works though.

I'll probably stick to VIM and Makefiles, though it would have been nice

Ok, not being able to let the IDDE go so easely, I went back to square 1 and
restored my SC++ 7.5 installation, downloaded and installed the DMC++ 8.1b5
(The Symantec 7.5 drop in replacement).

And I also installed the STLport (HEAD !).

With this setup I managed to build my STL based console application.

But I have a few questions :-)

What work is being done on the DMC++ to be able to build newer versions of
STL (like STLport v4.5x) ? (template specialisation).

Are there many changes to the IDDE and Resource Editor you supply on DM CD
compared to the Symantec v7.5 ?

DMC++ will continue to be improved to be compatible with the standards. If
you're comfortable with the Symantec IDDE, then the Digital Mars one should
work well for you. Why not get the DMC++ CD? The CD is loaded with 300Mb of
stuff, as opposed to the 2.8Mb free version.

www.digitalmars.com/shop.html

It's only $25. If you don't like it, return it for a refund. Best of all,
DMC++ doesn't need to be installed. Run it right off the CD. It doesn't
munge up your system registry and spray files all over your disk.

No. But there usually already is one in the system directory.
