Wouldn't it be nice to have a stable C++Builder 2006 RAD environment?

I would love to use that RAD to develop even PockePC apps!


1. Problem with TStream, C++ Builder 6 => Builder 2007

2. Reposted,simplified - Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 compiler vs Borland C++ Builder 5 compiler speed optimization.

I am getting no luck on the Borland newgroups so I thought I'd ask here
(don't laugh). We use both Microsoft and Borland here (mostly MS but one
project uses Borland C++
Builder 5). We have had many complaints from customers that parts of our
program run way too slow (our math calculations). So I made the following
test program:

long cnt = 0;
for (unsigned i = 0; i < 1000000; ++i)
for (unsigned j = 0; j < 100000; ++j)

When I compile this in Borland debug and MS debug, about 1 min.,
in Borland release (compiler
flags -O2, -O, -Ov, -OS, -ff) still about 1min., MS instantaniously.. I
couldn't believe
it. The problem is that the project IS in Borland, it has hundreds of
thousands of lines of calculations (in many many loops) and I'm stuck. It is
as if the loop optimization flag does not work (with no caculations, just
the loops and a counter, the time difference is still overwelming). I am
using the math coprocessor, I check. Have you heard of such time
differences? If so, have you heard how to improve such difference using the
Borland compiler? I feel that I must not be setting something correctly in
Borland but I don't know what. I have posted this in Borland newgroups too
but people just keep responding that the code is inefficient and I should
rewrite it in ASM. They are missing the point!!!! Any help would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks in advance. Alex
