There is a lot of confussion about this.  Builder is not a programming langauge.  it is an ordinary C++ compiler.  It comes with VCL, a "framework"  or a library of C++ classes and procedures that are useful to help you create windows programs.  But that framework is written in ordinary C++ and you do not have to use it.  (I use builder, but don't use VCL).

You can certainly ask question here about ordinary C++ issues.  You can ask questions about VCL, i.e what classes in VCL do what, that sort of thing, but you are not likely to get answers on those.  Very few programmers use it.  I would say 999 out of a 1000 use MFC, Microsoft's framework, so you can definitly get help on that if you decide to switch.

It is sure that VCL is used only with C++ Builder about the C language, but don't forget that VCL is also used by Delphi...not only 1 out of a 1000...
