New! CLANG enhanced RAD C++ Compiler for Windows 10 and Mobile
C++Builder 10 Seattle introduces standard C++ compiler for Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit) and Mobile (iOS and Android) with RAD extensions for the fastest Standard C++ Windows and Cross-Platform development. Tight integration with VCL for Windows and FMX cross-platform frameworks, C++11 language support, and ARC (Automatic Reference Counting) based memory management for mobile, with backward compatibility. C++Builder 10 Seattle is a must have upgrade for C++Builder Windows VCL developers or new C++ mobile and desktop developers coming from other languages and toolsets such as Java, ObjectiveC, C#, XCode, Xamarin, and Visual Studio.
C++ continues to be one of the most widely used languages in the world. C++ can found on every single operating system in existence, delivering low-level libraries and services like kernels and core runtime libraries, to high level networking and even GUI libraries. Although each of the major operating systems present application frameworks in various languages it is possible to write a full-featured C++ application for Windows, Android, Mac, and iOS with a common codebase. C++ continues to be the choice for application development where performance matters on complex problems and C++ is tailor made for the burgeoning embedded devices becoming IoT enabled.
CLANG/LLVM – A Standard Toolchain for a Standard Language
An ANSI/ISO standards body has managed the C++ language since 1998 and there have been many compiler implementations over those years including the award-winning Borland C++ compilers. Most operating systems support the open source GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) but another toolchain is quickly becoming the industry standard, CLANG, pronounced "KLANG" or "SEE-LANG." CLANG is part of the LLVM open source project and in addition to C and C++ also supports Objective-C in the same front-end. The LLVM project also contains the LLVM backend which is a highly optimized code generator for several CPU architectures. Embarcadero has significantly enhanced CLANG for application development and supports CLANG/LLVM for Windows 64-bit, Android, and iOS.
Embarcadero Makes Standard C++11 Even Easier To Use
The publication of C++11 made major strides toward simplifying daily C++ programming. The addition of simple to use constructs for lambda expressions, ranged-for loops, automatic type deduction, and memory management with shared/unique pointer types, for example. Embarcadero further enriches and simplifies C++11 with additional features, such as rich Run Time Type Identification (RTTI) which is equivalent in features to .NET Reflection and/or Java Introspection, Property-Method-Event syntax for building classes that can interact with a visual designer and generate closure for call-back events, and a full Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) model for the Android and iOS toolchains.
