if you do have the new delphi 8 for .NET, is the IDE slow ?
I do, and the IDE is slow :rolleyes:
I have the architect version, maybe because of my memory, i have 192 MB

192 MB isn't little at all. There are millions of things to do with 64MB (my PC), including games, 3D modelling/rendering, DSP, heavy animation with 25MB if not more sprites...
And the difference between 128MB and 64MB is huge - coz win takes up much of the ram anyways. So, it's because the coders of the IDE either don't care or don't know how to improve it.

I see, thank you
someone told me that you need minimun 256 MB of ram :rolleyes:

64 kB ought to be 'nuff'... ;)

My guess for it beeing slow is that it's VHLL stuff.

Or perhaps they wrote it in JAVA? ^_^

welcome to 2003. the ide alone easily consumes 100 mb of ram and more :tongue:
this should not be called delphi 8 anyway :rolleyes:

Maybe you should go back to Visual Studio 6, I use it I see no need to upgrade to VS .NET (don't have the $$$ either :) )

The compiler itself is reason enough to upgrade to vs.net...

- fixed the for scope variable declaration bug
- very C++ compliant, including the fancy new features
- pretty cute optimizer, including global/link-time optimization

I still have mixed feelings towards the IDE though... some things are better than vs6, some things are worse. I'm not fond of htmlhelp2, and I don't see why they upgraded the format.

why not :confused:

don't have the $$$ either

I dont have money either, but there are some places where you can get vs.net delphi.net for free ;)

I wanted it to try delphi 8 because borland claimed that old delphi win32 sources can be recompiled for .NET with no modification. :confused:

borland claimed that old delphi win32 sources can be recompiled for .NET with no modification.

Perhaps that's true? They have their own VCL, perhaps they can map that onto the .NET CLR stuff?

why not :confused:

it should be called 'delphi for .net' or something. generation of .net code is not optional but obligatory.
c++ builder x shouldn't be called c++ builder, either ;)

Perhaps that's true? They have their own VCL, perhaps they can map that onto the .NET CLR stuff?

seems like they did. the result is a 1,3 mb 'vcl forms' app vs. a 18kb 'windows forms' app :rolleyes:
