I am considering buy this IDDE of C++. I want am looking for a nice IDDE
with a reasonably recent implementation of the latest C++ ansi/iso draft committee. Does
anyone have any suggestions? I also would like it to be a small
footprint. Like around 100MB max. I use a labtop with a 11.3 Active
Matrix Screen. Thanks..

I don't know much about Symantec because I haven't heard anything from them lately. But both Visual C++ and Borland C++ Builder offer STL (standard template library), new C++ keywords, such as bool and mutable, and the new C++ cast operators: static_cast, dynamic_cast, reinterpret_cast, and const_cast. Visual C++ is Win32 specific. Borland C++ supports both DOS, Win16, and Win32. Footprint for both can be run from laptops as long as extraneous stuff is not installed and docs are on the cd-rom. I believe both even come with 30 day money back guarantee, so you can try it to see if you like it.

Thank you very much. I was hoping to find out more about Symantec C++ and from the lack of response it sure looks like Borland and Microsoft have the Market share (which I thought). I knew both of those were good choices as well and were very up to date. I still don't have the Symantec C++ questions answered. I have written Symantec but then again that's like asking a used car dealers if his/her cars are quality cars... :) Thanks..
