old repository for old C++ source code

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by *Prot3anThr3ad*, Sep 29, 2006.

  1. that pre-dates the current standard? (such as that which would work
    with borland's dos based Turbo C++ or Windows based Borland C++ 4.5x)

    working on a historical narrative (compare contrast style) of C++ from
    its inception up until now.

    x-post cut to 24hshd from

    Such as the manuals and examples in the boxes of Turbo C++ DOS Ver 3.0
    and Turbo C++ Windows V4.5 sitting here :) Got rid of BC++4.5 years

    You may like to try djgpp http://www.delorie.com/ and download the
    example code.

  3. I think you can get an old version of the Inventor (SGI) source code. I
    remember when I looked at it that it was doing many things to work
    around compiler issues that you wouldn't even dream of doing today. It
    probably won't run on borland tho.

    He could also look at some of Stroustrup's books (D&E, ARM) which
    contains many of the technicalities many in painful detail,
    as well as Stroustrup's various books (same ones) and papers
    (many available on his website http://www.research.att.com/~bs )
    listing many aspects of the history, again main in painful details.
    Actually, unless the narrative is for school, I would say most
    of the job is already done and no need to duplicate it.

  5. yea its for school.

  6. Thanks, Greg. I never realized that Stroustrup also worked at bell

    If you are trying to document the history of C++, you have a long
    way to go. It was developed to write the software for Bell's
    telephone exchanges.

  8. What I would like to do is document the changes in C++ from the early
    days until the current standard (for example, how many different ways
    can you write the plain hello.cpp program using the different
    standards) which is why i want to look at older source code.
