Developer's C++ Workshop is an IDE for native Microsoft®Windows
Basicly the project was founded to
be a clone of Microsoft
Visual Studio. At least the main application was intended
to have the same look and feel as the software from Microsoft.
The major part of the build environment
in Developer's C++ Workshop is MinGW32.
It means that there will be no Microsoft Foundation Classes.
Though I will try make some easy learning C++ classes for
programming Windows applications.
This far Developer's C++ Workshop
is programmed with mainly C and C++. It is compiled using
commandline tools, GNU
Make and GNU
There are several license issues about
using Developer's C++ Workshop. The program itself
is released under the terms of the GNU
General Public License. So is the major part of MinGW32
Make. The Scintilla
component has it's own license, w32api
has some copying limitations and other parts of the build
environment are placed in the public domain. Take a look at
README.TXT which is included in both the source and the binary
distribution of Developer's C++ Workshop.
Since its quite of out fashion using
some Microsoft®Windows platforms not all of them are supported
by this project.
use Developer's C++ Workshop on these platforms:
Microsoft®Windows 98 with Microsoft®Internet Explorer
