Well it was BLS who said ... instead of Bruce.Wow! I appreciate the new heights to which exaggeration has now reached. It's cool to know that our cave-dwelling ancestors were familiar with DOS! However, Bruce's point will not be erased by any amount of hyperbole. When I program in D, I use a text editor, not an IDE. To be sure, it's a programmer's text editor, with syntax highlighting; one that knows how to build D, and jump to the line causing any error, but still ultimately just a text editor. And it is more than adequate for the task. Not everyone uses an IDE. Neolithic jibes notwithstanding, that's just a fact.
If guess a lot of you folks still prefer to write letters instead of emails. just kidding :) However the architecture of current IDE's is allready ~15 years old. It is time to give 'em a cozy home on your 386 farm, guess they like to see the kids grow. Bjoern
Its not in dispute that a good IDE can improve your productivity. It is in dispute that its the best way. Clearly a lot of us are here because we believe improving the language is a better solution than simply using a better IDE for C++. Bruce.
