2-0 out of 5 stars Deceptive Claims
The big book inside the box is NOT the "Teach Yourself..." text. It is the manual for the C++ 4.5 complier for 16 bit applications in Windows 1.0. (Does ANYONE still use Windows 1.0?!) The "Teach Yourself..." text is available online for free, at least in its 21 day version (by the same author).

You will probably be unsuccessful choking down object oriented programming in a new language in 14 days. I understand 6 weeks is average. I took about 5 weeks. I already had experience with some older programming languages (BASIC, Fortran, DB, Korn), and I'm fairly adept at these sorts of things.

Although the documentation says you'll be able to produce stand-alone programs with the "Learn to Program with Borland C++ Builder 1.0" (not the same as "Borland C++ Builder 1.0"), I wasn't able to find a way to do that. Attempting to run an .exe compiled with this builder will result in the error message, "This program must be run within the C++ Builder environment," which means must first launch C++ Builder.

The "Teach Yourself..." text briefly discusses GDI's, which are the classes that you might use to, say, to draw a graph. The Builder apparently has these components available, but with little or no documentation. They certainly weren't in any usable form. Trying to access their properties was a joke. For instance, I had to guess at the correct usage of TCanvas (a bit like a virtual sheet of paper) based on discussions I gleaned from the Internet. I kept guessing wrong until I gave up.

This package is useful for DOS programmers and anyone wanting to write DOS-box programs for use under Windows. However, those wanting to do more are better advised to buy the C++ Builder 6 personal edition for about the same price. Then either buy a good [...] book or find the "Teach Yourself..." book online for free.

I am about to buy the Builder 6 and RMA the Turbo C++ suite back to Borland for a refund. (Hint: It will probably take you longer than the 30 day return period to figure out what this package won't do for you.)

... Never again will I trust any software with turbines.

5-0 out of 5 stars First time owner of C++...long time programmer.
This product is very no nonsense. For anyone who grew up programming in DOS, this is THE product. I wrote my first class object 45 mins after opening the package. Borland could have been a bit more verbose in project organization in DOS, but it's everything a 16 bit/DOS programmer dreams of. Documentation, very good... product examples, programs, etc., spectacular. Ease of installation, a snap! This is a MUST for anyone supporting clients still in DOS, and I know dozens here in Juneau.

4-0 out of 5 stars Why buy this?
Why buy the TC++ Suite? Depends on your needs, as a game programmer I make a lot of 'test' apps, menu systems, map editors, and debuggers; and I really don't want to waiste my time making this stuff work in wondows, when it works twice as fast in DOS. So, if you need to make apps that work in DOS the TC++ 3.0 and 4.5 are right for you. If you just want to learn C++ and Windows, I say buy the C++ Builder 5 or VC++ 6, and don't waiste your money on something you will only use for three months and then put away in a closet, never to be used again.

4-0 out of 5 stars Turbo Ok
This is a 7 year old product. Why not buy C++Builder 5.0 Standard for the same price, also made by Borland ? It has a powerful RAD Environment, Great debugger, and supports WIn 95, Win 98, Win NT and Win 2000 . ... Read more

Visual Studio .NET is Microsoft’s multi-faceted development tool, targeting both Windows and Web applications. This 2003 edition includes numerous small improvements as well as major new features like the Compact Framework, for applications that run on Pocket PC and other smart devices. It supports multiple languages, with the main ones being Visual Basic, C#, and C++. There is also a Java-like language called J#, although J# applications only work on Windows so this is not a true Java development tool. The Visual Studio .NET environment is truly integrated. It makes extensive use of docking and tabbed windows, and there are plenty of project wizards along with huge amounts of online help. Auto-completion and pop-up help eases the business of editing code.

Microsoft’s .NET tools are very different from their predecessors. Visual C++ can still compile standard Windows executables, but the other languages all target the .NET Framework, a runtime engine and class library that manages memory and enforces security. Framework applications perform well, since they are compiled to native code at runtime, but there is an overhead in terms of memory usage and the Framework runtime must be installed. In compensation, .NET brings many advantages. All the languages are fully object-oriented, the class library is rich, and XML support is fully integrated. ASP.NET is for web applications, and represents a large advance on the old ASP. Instead of script, ASP.NET supports any of the .NET languages, running on the server and just-in-time compiled to native code. There is a visual web page designer, and carefully designed applications support a wide range of browsers. New in this version of Visual Studio is Mobile Web Forms, which use adaptive rendering to support the browsers in mobile phones and PDAs. The database technology in Visual Studio is called ADO.NET, and uses a disconnected model that is ideal for laptops, smart devices, and wide area networks.

Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect 2003 is the top of the range. It’s the only version to include Visio, a drawing and modelling tool with integrated reverse-engineering and code-generation, though sadly not full round-tripping. There are also developer licenses for the key Microsoft server platforms, including Windows Server 2003, Exchange 2000 Server, Biztalk Server and SQL Server 2000. Another key component is the Visual SourceSafe code management system, which is especially important for team development, Application Center Test, for stress-testing web applications, and Enterprise Templates which let architects design and deploy best practices for project development. For those wondering whether to make the jump to .NET, this release is probably the right moment to go ahead. The technology is maturing, and the inclusion of the Compact Framework makes the package more compelling. The deep XML support on offer is essential for many enterprise applications and enables integration with other platforms. It’s still important to note the heavy system requirements, and that .NET applications do not run on Windows 95. In most cases, the higher productivity of .NET languages soon pays for any additional resources. --Tim Anderson, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2003 Enterprise Architect
Microsoft Visual Studio.NET Enterprise Architecht enables programmers to take full advantage of the .NET platform. Visual Studio.NET allows programmers to utilize the newer .NET framework 1.1, which contains enhancements in security and performance.
This version of Visual Studio includes: Visual Basic.NET 2003, Visual C++.NET 2003, Visual C#.NET 2003, and Visual J#.NET 2003. Having access to all of the .NET languages means that you have the ability to code in whichever language is most appropriate to your project.

A few language enhancements have also been included in this version. One of the most useful is the ability to declare a variable inside a loop using VB.NET 2003. For example:

For each var1 as string in varArray
'Do action
Next

Microsoft also bundles a handful of useful utilities with this package. These utilities will enable you to monitor your applications, benchmark web services, obfuscate your code, and much more.

.NET has a slightly different syntax than earlier versions of the languages (ie version 6), so if you are new to .NET a reference book would be handy.

Visual Studio.NET 2003 is worth the upgrade.

If you are a developer using several Microsoft technologies, a MSDN subscription is very helpful. MSDN Universal subscriptions include Visual Studio Enterprise Architect, developer licenses for all Microsoft operating systems, developer licenses for all Microsoft server systems, Microsoft Office Professional Enterprise edition, and more. MSDN subscribers have access to support via managed newsgroups and phone support. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Visual Studio .NET is a superb, next-generation development tool. At its heart is the .NET Framework, a runtime engine and class library that enables rapid application building for both Windows and Web applications. The runtime engine handles housekeeping tasks, like memory management, while also providing fine-grained security and version awareness. The class library reduces the code needed to build rich applications. Visual Studio .NET also provides a slick visual environment, with features like tabbed and docking windows, dynamic online help, and automatic code completion and hints.

The common runtime is language-neutral so, for example, Visual Basic programmers can use components written in C# and vice versa. Other languages, such as COBOL and FORTRAN, can plug into Visual Studio, and Microsoft provides a version of the Java language called J#.

Overall, Visual Studio .NET is a radical break from the past for Microsoft. C# is an entirely new language, aimed at C and C++ programmers looking for something safer and more productive. Visual Basic .NET is a new twist on the old Microsoft favorite, losing compatibility with earlier versions, but gaining full object orientation as well as access to all the .NET libraries. These two languages, along with J#, have full support for the visual design tools in Visual Studio .NET. Also included is JScript .NET, Microsoft's version of JavaScript, although this comes without a form designer. Visual C++ is similar to earlier versions and is the only compiler included that can build old-style Windows executables. With a compiler switch, it can also target .NET, making it particularly flexible.

Visual Studio .NET has two distinct form designers. Windows Forms are for traditional Windows applications, but managed by the common runtime. Web Forms are ASP.NET pages, which means they run on Web servers and work over the Internet. Microsoft has made designing and coding Windows Forms and Web Forms as similar as possible so that both types of applications can share components and much of the complexity of coding Web applications is kept hidden. Another key feature is Web services, which lets developers create an XML interface for an application so that it can be called across the Web or from any platform or language. XML support generally is strong, with a range of classes for parsing and transforming XML data. There is also a visual designer for XML Schema.

There are a few points against Visual Studio .NET. One is that, like earlier versions, it only creates applications that run on Windows. Web applications are a partial exception, in that they support cross-platform clients, but deployment requires a Windows Web server. Another factor is that, with its multiple compilers and mountains of documentation, Visual Studio .NET eats up gigabytes of disk space, and the IDE tends to be slow with less than around 384 MB RAM. Serious developers will take this in stride, but casual users could have difficulty. Fortunately, the applications created have more modest system requirements, although Windows 95 is not supported. Finally, developers coming from earlier editions face a lot of learning due to radical changes in both Visual Basic and ASP.

Despite these minor issues and a steep learning curve, Visual Studio .NET is an extremely versatile, sophisticated, and capable development tool. --Tim Anderson, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as eclipse
Up until a year ago I think I would have been praising Microsoft for yet another great product...then IBM release eclipse 2.0, and everything changed. Eclipse has an amazingly solid interface, great version control integration, and incredible ease of use. And... oh by the way, tons of features you don't find in VS.NET, like code formatting/ beautifying (no I'm not talking about changing the font), easy file manipulations, *real* pre-compile time code checking, and did I mention it was free and can be run in both Windows and Linux? Ahh... so you say I'm not a java programmer, eclipse is useless to me....WRONG!!! A Project is already underway to add .NET support, specifically C#.

Head to head eclipse is hands down the clear winner, but hey I suggest you draw your own opinions. Download eclipse and see for yourself.

1-0 out of 5 stars Software ad description misinterpeted
Dealing with Cheepmac is pretty risky
When I received the software package, it is an upgrade for Microsoft Visual Studio.net 2002 and not Visual Studio 6.0 as the ad claimed.
I have sent a number (5 to 8) emails from work and home to Cheepmac@yahoo.com in regards to this problem and trying to get shipping information to return this item. I sent these emails within the 7 days of receiving the order.
I have never received an email from Cheepmac@yahoo.com for return instructions.
I contacted Microsoft on the phone and they said that this upgrade had been discontinued a long time ago and clearly states on the package what the requirements were and it looked as if Cheepmac took me to the cleaners.
I do not know why Cheepmac will not contact me back.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for web, weak on native C++
This edition of Visual Studio is geared heavily towards web and .NET development. If you're still a native C++ programmer, the interface is going to feel clunky and project management (adding / removing configurations, the build process) can be a nightmare. The debugger is great, the compiler has improved, and the new runtime code checks are fantastic. They just need to work on the UI for non-.NET developers.

5-0 out of 5 stars MS shoots and scores
I've been using VS.NET for about 4 months now, and everyday I get more excited about it capabilities. I'm an experienced VB5/6 programmer and VB.NET is a whole new level. The OO features are welcomed and I've been waiting for them. VB development environment has always been the key to RAD in my mind. VS.NET takes that a step further and offers many new enhancements. The VB language is now very eligant and clean with loads a capability provided by the .NET Framework. The .NET Framework simplifies many methods I used to code by hand, and the extent of the base classes are sick!

I have to mention distribution also... I distributed some apps around the company on many machines without installing a single .NET component, just load the framework and you're going (unless you need a legacy COM component).

5-0 out of 5 stars Adios Java!
Finished a Java course a few months ago and thought, ok, as far as oop goes, Java is top notch, but boy, oh boy, do the IDE's out there for Java stink! Then I got a hold of VS.NET and started learning C#. Wow! What a killer combo! Even using C# with the free SharpDevelop is better than Java and the incredibly bad Forte. I'll admit JBuilder is pretty good, but no way does it compare to VS.NET. And yes folks, you WILL see .NET applications running on Unix, Linux and Mac very soon, so start learning now!! Gee, you think this might give Sun less to wine about? We'll see. :-) ... Read more

It also includes developer versions of many of Microsoft's server products, including SQL Server, Commerce Server, Exchange Server, and the Windows 2000 Advanced Server operating system. These are licensed for development only, but even so, it is a rich range of products. Finally, there is the ability to use enterprise templates. New in Visual Studio .NET, these are sophisticated skeleton projects that assist organizations in maintaining consistent best practices. The twist is that, while Enterprise Developer can use these templates, it cannot create them. For that you need the high-end Enterprise Architect.

You can do some pretty amazing things with this software. However, as with most Microsoft developement products, WIERD things happen for no reason and this product becomes unstable at times.

Amazon.com Review

Visual Studio .NET is a superb, next-generation development tool. At its heart is the .NET Framework, a runtime engine and class library that enables rapid application building for both Windows and Web applications. The runtime engine handles housekeeping, like memory management, while also providing fine-grained security and version awareness. The class library reduces the code needed to build rich applications. Visual Studio .NET also provides a slick visual environment, with features like tabbed and docking windows, dynamic online help, and automatic code completion and hints. The common runtime is language-neutral, so, for example, Visual Basic programmers can use components written in C# and vice versa.

Other languages, such as COBOL and FORTRAN, can plug into Visual Studio, and Microsoft provides a version of the Java language called J#. These two languages, along with J#, have full support for the visual design tools in Visual Studio .NET. Also included is JScript .NET, Microsoft's version of JavaScript, although this comes without a form designer. Visual C++ is more similar to earlier versions, and is the only compiler included that can build old-style Windows executables. With a compiler switch, it can also target .NET, making it particularly flexible.

The Enterprise Developer edition has source-code management with Visual SourceSafe, performance testing, and analysis tools. It also includes developer versions of many of Microsoft's server products, including SQL Server, Commerce Server, Exchange Server, and the Windows 2000 Advanced Server operating system. These are licensed for development only, but even so, it is a rich range of products. Finally, there is the ability to use enterprise templates. New in Visual Studio .NET, these are sophisticated skeleton projects that assist organizations in maintaining consistent best practices. The twist is that, while Enterprise Developer can use these templates, it cannot create them. For that you need the high-end Enterprise Architect.

Overall, Visual Studio .NET is a radical break from the past for Microsoft. C# is an entirely new language, aimed at C and C++ programmers looking for something safer and more productive. Visual Basic .NET is a new twist on the old Microsoft favorite, losing compatibility with earlier versions but gaining full object orientation as well as access to all the .NET libraries.

There are a few points against Visual Studio .NET. One is that, like earlier versions, it only creates applications that run on Windows. Web applications are a partial exception, in that they support cross-platform clients, but deployment requires a Windows Web server. Another factor is, with its multiple compilers and mountains of documentation, Visual Studio .NET eats up gigabytes of disk space, and the IDE tends to be slow with less than around 384 MB RAM. Serious developers will take this in stride, but casual users could have difficulty. Fortunately, the applications created have more modest system requirements, although Windows 95 is not supported. Finally, developers coming from earlier editions face a lot of learning, with radical changes in both Visual Basic and ASP.

Despite these minor issues and a steep learning curve, Visual Studio .NET is an extremely versatile, sophisticated, and capable development tool. --Tim Anderson, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Only Way to Go If You Go Microsoft
If you're a Microsoft developer, you don't have much choice. There are some semi-lame development tools out there for the .NET platform but this is your only real choice. Of course, this is Version 1.0 of new technology so I expect vast improvements in the future. Microsoft is not famous for coming out with high-quality stuff in version 1. I think the visual interface looks worse than Visual Studio 6.0 - not as polished. In fact, it looks kind of like they hired the guy who designed the interface for the Forte for Java thing they push over at Sun - uuuuugly.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Visual Studio

5-0 out of 5 stars World-Class IDE / Almost ANSI Standard
I presently use Borland 4.5, Builder 4 Enterprise, Builder 5 Professional, and Visual C++ 6.0 Enterprise SP4 in my work. Of the 4, Visual C++ has (hands down) the most intuitive and "prettiest" IDE.

While Builder does a better job when it comes to Rapid Application Development, its windowing system is "clunky" at best. Also, Microsoft's class explorer and intelli-sense features are worlds better than the equivalent provided by Inprise.

Another feature I like that is in the Enterprise edition of Visual C++ is function profiling. This feature is fully integrated and can inform the developer of time "bottle-necks" in the code. Also, one can use the feature to compare algorithm speed.

The major gripe I have with Visual C++ is that it is not as ANSI standard as Builder 4 (and especially Builder 5). On several occasions, I have attempted to compile ANSI/ISO Standard code involving templates that compiles under Borland but not under Visual C++ 6.0. In all fairness, I must mention that Borland 4 doesn't always successfully compile some template constructs either.

If one simply must have ANSI Standard compliance, I would use Inprise Builder 5. However, Visual C++ brings a higher level of polish to the table, and is much more widely used. I eagerly await version 7 of Visual C++, which should merge ANSI/ISO standardization and a world-beating IDE. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Well-suited for teaching beginning C/C++
While this product is dated and does not contain all of the modern bells and whistles of more sophisticated packages, I still find it of value. In terms of cost, ease of use and simplicity, I would much rather use it to teach introductory C++ than Microsoft Visual C++. I have used both packages to teach C++ at the college level and it is so much easier to use the Borland package. It uses fewer resources and the cost is nominal to non-existent. The faster loads and compiles also save a surprising amount of time. That is never more prominent than when you are lecturing to a class and demonstrating how a code change affects the output. This requires that you wait for the compile and link sequence to complete and the Borland package is much faster.
The coverage is also more than adequate for all aspects of C and C++ that one normally covers in the introductory courses. When teaching C++, I avoid the introduction of GUI development as long as possible, preferring to concentrate on how to program rather than how to lay objects on a form. Since there is no visual component to this package, there is the added advantage that the student cannot be distracted by it. In my experience in teaching Visual Basic, students seem to be so enthralled by the visual aspects that they consider the more important coding to be secondary. That is of course false, but it is a very hard point to get across.
I have used this package to teach C/C++ and also use it to write most of the programs I use in my mathematical research. You can get students up and running in a matter of minutes and keeping them using it is very low maintenance.

1-0 out of 5 stars This Software Has Bugs.
This Borland C++ 5.0 Starter Kit (actually C++ 5.02) contains modules which were first written in 1988 to run under DOS. I tried to get it to run under NT 4.0 (which it is supposed to do) and it took my system down.
After trying everything I could think of -- I do systems programming for a living - I finally resorted to the Sam's textbook which accompanied the kit. I was much gratified to find an entry in the index for "Borland C++ Development Suite 5.0" which pointed me to page 444. Unfortunately this textbook ends on page 427 -- there is no page 444... Somewhere "out there" is a page 444 which might contain helpful information but it isn't in this book. Nevertheless a small voice inside my head did supply the appropriate information: "Send it back!" said the small voice and so that is what I am doing.
My advice? Don't buy this kit. It is nothing but trouble.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great buy!
Compared to Visual C++, I'd take this anyday. I can't comment on the book that's included, as I never looked at it, but the software is the best you'll find at a price that won't kill your wallet. It doesn't have quite as many features as other programs, but these features are usually minor things, like the ability to see all DLLs which your program requires, or to package your program with an installer, and there is freeware/shareware that is available to do both of these.

The weakest feature of the software is a poorly-done help file system. On the other hand, it comes with something like 50-75 fully working example programs (almost all are windows programs), which are great ways to see the tricks of the trade.

I use this compiler exclusively. I've published several programs as freeware on the web, and I've found this more than meets my needs in every way.

For those that are interested in the book, it ships with "Sams' Teach Yourself C in 24 hours", so you can look at the reviews of that book for comments. IMO, it's worth the buy just for the compiler, and the book is an afterthought.

3-0 out of 5 stars See about C
This c I do not recommend, I recommend Microsoft Visual C ++, the book Windows game programming for dummies. These are good things, to get. I look up on web sites and found a site and he is a video game designer and programmer. He recommended these. so, get the advanced one and not this one. Borland is not a good company to by from. Microsoft is the leading company so this is good but spend a little bit more money, about 20 dollers is. So in conclusion, i recommend some other software to use if you want a good solid software, altough this is a 1980 software. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Borland's C++ 5.0 Programming Starter Kit is a virtual compendium of Cand C++ resources. The package is designed for anyone with between no C orC++ knowledge to an advanced-basic to intermediate level of programmingunderstanding. Better yet, each component ties in with the others, making this avery useful package for getting a full education in the wonders of C++ in a step-by-step fashion.

In your first step, tackle the hard-copy book Sams Teach Yourself C in 24Hours, 2nd Edition, by Tony Zhang. By completing each one-hour lesson, andthen subsequently performing the task using the C compiler CD, you'll be off toa great start toward C proficiency. The topics begin with "What is C?" and gothrough a variety of functions, characters, constants, variables, and more.You'll also learn to troubleshoot and debug your programs, discover pointers andarrays, and declare functions. Zhang wraps it all up with compiling your code,the nuts and bolts process of making your program a program. You'll also havethe e-book C Primer Plus, by Stephen Prata, available to consult, whichworks as a great reference to complement your study of C.

Next you can turn your attention to the two other e-books that are included: theconversational The Complete Idiot's Guide to C++ Sourcecode, by PaulSnaith, and reference-style C++ How To. The Idiot's Guide providesa lot of direction in the way of examples, but you'll find a scant amount ofactual exercises for the student. You'll find that in C++ How To, whichis arranged to support the learning that you've already done with 24Hours, in that it's logically organized into topics: language topics, datastructures, algorithms, memory management, and input/output. Each chapter beginswith a list of "How do I ..." questions that allow for easy access.

But this package isn't truly about the documentation: it's about actuallyworking with the languages. Borland provides you with a C++ compiler (which, asall C++ compilers do, works to compile both C++ and C programs). What this meansfor you is that you can see the programs that you generate throughout your questfor C++ knowledge come to fruition in the DOS environment.

And once you're ready to develop the hard-hitting questions and think about theissues surrounding the use of C and C++ in the real world, you can use thesecond disc's collection from Dr. Dobb's Journal, which spans from January 1988 to June 2000. This searchable resource allows you to referencearticles from these issues, plus the Dr. Dobb's Sourcebook Series andpreviously unpublished source code, and also lets you copy code into yourprojects. --Emilie Dirks ...

This is the best starter kit i think macmillan software has ever released. After being extremely dissapointed with their game programming starter kit 4.0, and went and got this. It has excellent documentation, and Borland C++ 5.0 builder, which i think is better than microsoft Visual C++ 6.0. I would reccomend this to anyone who has an urge to create programs or games...
