Borland C++ vs C++Builder professional

By Kenny G. ·
I am a student programmer. In class we use Borland C++ 5.02. I bought for home C++ builder pro 5. The problem I have is I can't get the C++ builder to start with same UI as my C++ 5.02 in school. I have tried for several hours. All I want to do is open a new project, with a text editor and a program manager that looks like what I am using in school (the C++ 5.02 view). If anyone knows what I mean and can help thank you in advance.

Yo, C++ builder is a visual interface for programming, however you can write programs that don't use forms. If you good to new projects, and select a new console project you should be able to write a dos based program.

if that doesn't work the ifyou go to the windows option in the menu and and select
the edit window. and write you program just as you did using the Borland complier for C++
You should be all set

C++ Builder is the thing Borland started to develop after their last C++ 5.xx release. This is the fifth version now and you still expect that it will have common interface with its nonvisual grandfather?

However, the compiler in the C++ Builder is just a newer version of Borland C++ 5.02 and it can be used the same way - the command line should not be different. This compiler is in your 'CBuilder5\Bin' directory and is named 'bcc32.exe', which is standart since Borland C++ 3.0.

If you want the same interface system like in your class, you should wriley use Borland C++ 5.02 instead.
