Bjarne Stroustrup's incomplete list
« on: December 26, 2006, 05:55:53 pm »
Has anyone already emailed Bjarne Stroustrup to try to get him to add Code::Blocks to his list?

http://www.research.att.com/~bs/compilers.html

Not to knock down Dev-C++, but I think that Code::Blocks provides way more functionality and ease of use, that's why I switched over. Would be nice if someone just starting out in C++ could at least have an opportunity to give Code::Blocks a try.

Well I could do that, but 1 important remark (!!!), Dev-cpp and Code:Blocks should not be in that list. Why ? They are not compilers, but IDE's. We ship along with our official build MinGW. So actually we don't belong in that list, MinGW does, which in turn is a port of GNU GCC. Maybe we could consider this when we have RC3 or V1, but now the only package with compiler we have is RC2, and we all know we don't want people to use RC2 anymore ;-)
But it is a good idea, when we are on Bjarne's list then it's a good thing for CB community.

Oh I know they are not compilers, but IDE's. He does mention that next to Dev-C++, so why not have Code::Blocks on the list and put the same disclaimer next to it? Ha, either he may decide to add Code::Blocks to his list or just remove Dev-C++. Hey, one or the other. :)

Sounds good.
