Turbo C and Turbo Pascal are back!!

<< < (2/5) > >>

cant install 3rd party components, that sucks - i wonder if they will experience some pushback from component developers..

i notice the PRO version of explorer, which is still only $100 for students, CAN install 3rd party components, which in my mind would be worth it.  the use of 3rd party components is one of the best features.


Definately hate those products...

I started programming with Turbo Pascal 6.0 (and later on, Borlan Pascal 7.0). Nothing got even close to it back then, in terms of IDE or integrated help system. Having a decent and crosslinked and topic'ized help system was an extreme advantage when learning programming.

It was also very nifty that TP6 could compile+link directly to memory, so the build/test/debug/rebuild cycle got a lot faster - harddrives were EXTREMELY slow back then :)

Definitely a lot better than having started off with crap like BASIC.

Unless you used variants like BBC Basic which was a brilliant procedural and function based language in its day.
