Re: Borland C (v 5.02) and Win 98 Compiling

Just for your information, I've been running my mud under Borland C++
with win95 for about 2 years now.  I personally like Borland compaired
to MCVC5, which I have also tried.  It's mainly just my own preferance,
but with Borland, it is easier for me to debug my code.

I can give you instructions on how to make a project and compile it in
the Borland IDE, and tell ya how to use the debugger, but the coding in
is your problem. :)

Also, as for the benefits to porting it into C++ code..  You get object
oriented code.  Which will prob make coding easier to do and read,
however the drawbacks...  Finding someone to do it, you lose backwards
compatibility, you actually have to find a compiler.(I'm not sure if any
free ones are C++ or if they are all just C)  Etc.  It is up to you.  If
you port it into C++, I would like to see what you did, but besides
that, it'll be a big task to undertake.

If you want any help using Borland, mail me to my personal address and
I'll get back to you.
