Limitations

Bloodshed Dev-C++ is a full-featured programming environment and compiler for creating software in C++. Included in the Dev-C++ environment are all of the standard features necessary for writing, compiling, debugging, and executing programs written in C.

Strictly for the hard-core C++ programmer, Dev-C++ allows you to compose all of your source code without many of the hand-holding features and expenses included in many of the available programming environments.

"Excellent for Beginners!"

I first started programming C++ about 4 years ago. I love the language but like most beginner

programmers I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money on a compiler, since I didn't know whether

programming would be something I would want to take off with. It turns out I'm addicted to computer

programming and have written many applications and even two video games. I probably never would

have made it to this point if it weren't for the free Bloodshed Dev C++. I disagree with "jbaadams"

above in saying that the software is outdated and unusable. In actuality its perfect for beginners and

even intermediate to advanced programmers. If you learn programming the way I did, you start by

learning console programming. Then you graduate to programming Windows. For both of these, DevC++

is all you need. After, learning Windows you may graduate to programming in DirectX. This is where

the DevC++ IDE begins to lose it. When I first started learning DirectX programming, I started with

older versions of DirectX that supported outdated features like directdraw. DevC++ works great with

directdraw and other older directx features. However, when you start programming using Direct3D,

the DevC++ IDE becomes unusable, because it does not have a lot of the libraries necessary to handle

Direct3D even if you have the DirectX SDK 8.1 or higher. But, come on!!! Number 1, by the time you get to where your programming Direct3D you are advanced enough to where you should consider investing in

a more sophisticated IDE, and number 2, dont forget the DevC++ is a FREE IDE. It doesn't owe you anything!!

I, personally, think it gets you a lot farther than it really should. Never mind what "jbaadams" says.

1) he says it should be made unavailable; on the contrary, I think all C or C++ programming students are

extremely lucky to have it available. 2) It doesn't have all of the "bells and whistles" that some IDE's

have but as was stated above, as a beginner, its better that you dont have these "hand-holding" features.

The DevC++ IDE is somewhat basic, but that's what makes it easy to learn and understand, and that's

exactly what you need if your beginning programming. I give it a 20 out of 10 rating!!!
