The 25 days of C++mas - December 9 - C++Builder 64-bit Debugging Debugging C++Builder XE3 64-bit Windows applications is similar to debugging C++Builder  32-bit Windows applications. You can find additional about debugging C++ (and Delphi) applications on the Embarcadero DocWiki (see links below). In C++Builder XE3 for 64-bit Windows, there are some differences in debugging using the IDE. These are also listed below. Debugging in the IDE The Embarcadero DocWiki has several articles about how to use the IDE debugger for both 32-bit and 64-bit applicat...
The 25 days of C++mas - December 7 - Precompiled Header Files C++Builder XE3 provides support for pre-compiling the header files used in your C++ applications. Creating and using precompiled headers can do two major things for you: 1) it can reduce the compilation time of C++ files, 2) it can reduce the number of lines of code that the compiler must process (in some cases, by several orders of magnitude). The IDE automatically generates a PCH.h file for every new C++ project for any target platform (Mac OS X, 32-bit Windows, or 64-bit Windows). You can s...
The 25 days of C++mas - December 5 - stricter C++Builder Win64 compiler In providing support for the C++11 standard, the C++Builder 64-bit compiler for Windows is more strict than the C++Builder 32-bit compiler. As a developer you have the choice for which compiler you want to use depending on your platform needs.  If you want to build C++ applications for Windows and Mac OSX, use the 32-bit C++Builder compiler.  If you want build Windows only applications, you can use either compiler depending on our application needs.  VCL and FireMonkey component libraries are pr...
The 25 days of C++mas - December 3 - survey of favorite C++11 features A few weeks ago, I created a survey asking our C++Builder customers and CodeRage 7 C++ conference registrants to rank order their favorite C++11 language and library features.  Thank you to all of those who have taken the survey so far. The ranked survey results [1] as of December 3, 2012 are: C++11 Feature ISO-C++11 Doc auto-typed variables N1984 Initializer lists N2672 Rvalue references N2118 Non-static data member initializers N2756 Initialization of ...
The 25 days of C++mas - December 2 - some of my favorite C++11 links There are many C++11 websites, blog posts, videos and articles available that will help you take advantage of the new C++Builder XE3 64-bit compiler when it is released this month. Here are a few of my favorite C++ language and C++Builder sites, blogs, articles and videos.

Rank your favorite new C++11 language features The ISO C++ 2011 (C++11) language standard was completed last year on August 12, 2011. I have created a one question survey that asks C++ developers to rank their favorite (using whatever determining factors you want) new C++11 language features. Click here to take SurveyMonkey survey I hope you will take a couple of minutes to participate in the fun. I will post a blog with the results when the survey period ends. You can find links to information about each of the C++11 new language ...
