August 2012 Developer's Poll

Unfortunately, there are not too many C++Builder books in existence (though, there are several on Delphi). I don't even recall the most recent C++Builder book.

I own at least three C++Builder books, the latest one (BCB6 Dev. Guide) from 2002.

Thanks in advance for your votes.

Cheers,

I still use only a single monitor. No good reason, just so used to it. I think it's time to add at least one more!

Thanks in advance for your votes.

March 2012 Developer's Poll

It is well known that the C++ compiler in C++Builder does not generate fast code. For example, compared to Visual Studio or g++, some of my image-processing algorithms take twice as long to complete (or more) when compiled in C++Builder. The same exact code. So, for me, there are many parts of my co...

Re: January 2012 Developer's Poll

After three weeks of training a few weeks of fiddling with LabView, I determined Builder was the only way to go for sophisticated bench automation with a *strong* database backbone. Steve: I totally agree regarding LabView. It has it's strengths, but I've found C++Builder to be stronger in many res...

November/December 2011 Developer's Poll

One could argue that the true power of C++Builder stems from its ability to support custom components (and thereby support RAD). Assuming you write components, how many of your own components do you actually use? Not how many instances, but how many different components? Thanks in advance for your v...

September 2011 Developer's Poll

Without Ribbons, I think C++Builder lacks a good toolbar. The list above reflect my order of preference, but even TActionToolBar is not as polished as MFC's old toolbars, especially when it comes to docking.

What does everyone use?
