It is the same language - C++, just various developer environments. If you are working with Visual Basic, I recommend you Visual C++.

Hi j88,

Both of the above tools help u write C++ code. There may be some minor differences, very specific to the respective compilers they use to compile, but as such, u should be learning C++ langauge and not the tools which u mentioned.

Agree with the other comments Borland/Microsft just make IDE tools and compilers for the same language. They both also add some extra functionality to their own compilers.

If you are looking from a job finding point of view I'd go with Microsoft as they are more popular with development companies. I'm not saying that there are no people developing in borland, just that MS is more popular.

Hello all you !

    I just begin with C++ language , so my need is a developer environment easy for learning. I just know Delphi and visual basic so
some my guys advise get C++ Builder because I can use some components both of delphi and C++ builder.
   And i look the web they said C++ builder as easy to use as Visual Basic .
the link is:
http://hardwarecentral.dealtime.com/xPR-Borland_C_Builder_Professional_Edition_6_Full_Version_PC_CPB1360WWFS180~RD-58497207940

 Is that right?

If you are just learning, I would stay away from using ready made components and such. This would apply to any environment you chose. It's nice to use ready made components but  you are not learning much just by plugging them in. It's much more gratifying to write something small by yourself then just to use something somebody else wrote. As you will learn later most of the stuff that other people write doesn't fit your needs 100% so you will have to modify it anyway.

The rule I keep to when coding is, if somebody walked up to me showed me the code to my program and asked me to explain it, I want to be sure that I can. I don't want to be cought with my pants down and code I don't understand ....
