RE: c++ confusion


Borland is not outdated if you get the new Borland if you use the free one
it is but even Borland 5.5 is a good environment to build 32 bit programs.
The problem with the newer c++ builder is the access for the development
environment sucks since its Java.

Hello,
Return 0; has nothing to do with the memory. It's just the exit code that
gets returned to the calling process. The memory management is delt with by
the OS its self, and the library.
If you want to use borland that works too, but as far as I remember, borland
is kind of outdated.
