An Objective Look at C++ Environments
March/April 1989 (vol. 6 no. 2)
pp. 100-103

The authors evaluated six C++ environments: three for MS-DOS PCs, and three for mini and mainframe Unix systems. They tested the MS-DOS products-Advantage C++ Version 1.2 (beta2a), Guidelines C++ Version 1.2, and Zortech C++ Version 1.05-on an 8-MHz, 80286-based PC with a 44-Mbyte hard disk but with no math coprocessor. They tested Oregon C++ Version 1.1C on a Sun-3 running SunOS 3.5; GNU C++ on a Sequent Balance 21000 running Dynix 3.0; and AT&T C++ on the Sequent, the Sun, and on a Digital Equipment Corp. MicroVAX II running Unix 4.3 BSD. They believe, based on the results of their study, that C++ will be the dominant object-oriented language that industry uses for serious software development.
