"a very great product at an unbeatable price!!"

June 17, 2009  |  By ogheri

 |  Version: Digital Mars C/C++ Compiler 8.49

Pros

I like the digital mars c++ compiler a lot!!
First of all, the command line tools are free (compiler,linker, make, librarian, resource compiler etc...)
but, if you want to do HARD programming, the IDE is 50$ only, with MFC and a lot of good stuff!

Cons

nothing that I can mention

"Very good...."

February 22, 2006  |  By SirVic

 |  Version: Digital Mars C/C++ Compiler 8.47

Pros

Very fast compile times, lot of options to choose from. No errors found yet.

Cons

Makes it tedious with out writing a batch file.

To make life easier write this in notepad and save with .bat ext.

for %%a in (*.cpp *.c) do dmc %%a %1 %2 %3

"You will just hate your self in the morning."

December 06, 2005  |  By William56

 |  Version: Digital Mars C/C++ Compiler 8.29

Pros

I actually got it to work. I didn't say I got it to work well. I believe the developer really had a good idea.

Cons

If you are new to programming then avoid this program. There are plenty of other free ones that will not cause a migraine. No user interface of any kind. Leaves one in the dark. Does not compile well even when the path is given. Locks up often.

"Good, but the description given with the download isn't quite accurate I think."

March 01, 2005  |  By Xopher

 |  Version: Digital Mars C/C++ Compiler 8.29

Pros

Very, very easy to use, and no registry files needed! (Big plus to anyone who has to run Registry Mechanic more than once a day because of naffing installs gone wrong.) To set the path it's just Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environmental Variables, and then clicking on path append a ;C:\DM\Bin to the value, not hard at all. It's not needed, you could still type out the full directory location of the DMC compiler, but still, it makes life alot easier.

Cons

It would seem the claims of including "the MicroEmacs editor" aren't quite correct, and their download off the homepage isn't the best. (or at least I couldn't get it to work, but that might just be my own finky ISP.)

Another thing that's a con, though not really of the program, is that the user should make sure to save the projects he or she is working on in a directory other than My Documents, especially if running XP. It's just a pain to CD through the Documents and Settings folder, and I'd recomend just adding a simple Projects folder to the C:\DM folder if you extracted it there.
