'[OT]: Delphi or C++ Builder'

Hi,

Just out of curiousity are there any user of the above software around in
the pic world. Its just that I see lots of mention of VB, but not of the
above.

I use Delphi quite extensively in my job at Kanda with GUI work, and C++
builder with any compiler/console apps that I work on.

I have in the past found a few American customers that had not even heard of
Borland/Inprise. Is the Delphi C++ Builder use a European thing. I find that
US customers who want sourcecode with their work prefer MS Visiual C++, if
you've used C++ builder then you'll know what I mean when I say, I hate all
the API stuff that this requires.

Bryan

i don't think that delphi is a necessisarily european thing, but i also
noticed a geographical pattern to its useage.
on the west coast ( i live in canada) there are not many posted jobs for
delphi programmers, but on the east coast, well, ok, toronto area, there are
significantly more postings (yes there are more people there, but seems not
proportional).

i think it has something to do with the proximity to Redmond, WA and the
amount of advertising bombardment one is subject to.

i have noticed that there does seem to be a higher level of acceptance of
different tools in EU. there seems to be a 'whatever gets the job done best'
type of attitude. not that i live or work there, just most of the best delphi
tips, tricks and tools that i use come from european programmers.

i can't speak for c builder at all, just my observations regarding delphi.

my two cents worth.

Good day,

We use Borland c++ Builder 3.0 for the pc interface software to read our
data loggers, and we are a US company.

I used v3 for a while and found that it was very buggy and crashed a lot :)
Then we moved up to Delphi 5, and we got C++ Builder 4, this was a lot more
stable. It also meant that a lot of the Delphi 4 code we had written would
compile with this version of the builder. Its that sort of code sharing that
I like with this software. A lot of the stuff we've done in the past is in
object pascal, which compiles without a problem in v4.

Hi,

My company uses Delphi exclusively for pc-side interfaces to pic-based
products, and also work in many other areas (TCP/IP, Database, etc.)

We're european based.

Hi,

Located in Europe :)
My company uses mostly Delphi but unfortunately
have to code much new stuff in VB ( customer requirment ).

Myself I'm completely sold for Builder, as you say
one can concentrate on the 'real' stuff and not the ittybitty
stuff as with MS Visual C. ( although I use it from time to time )

/Tony
