BORLAND SHIPS BORLAND C++ 2.0 FOR OS 2; New Version Includes OWL Support and OS 2 Warp Compatibility.
"Borland C++ 2.0 now allows C++ programmers to take full advantage of OWL, a full-featured cross-platform application framework that now supports both Windows and OS/2," said Paul Gross, Borland's vice president and general manager, Languages and Client/Server Business Unit. "Software programmers who develop for a variety of platforms can now easily port their OWL applications from Windows to OS/2."
"With more that 700,000 copies sold in six weeks, OS/2 Warp is rapidly gaining momentum as a 32-bit operating system environment," said Jim Gant, IBM's vice president of Solution Developer Operations. "Borland C++ for OS/2, which now includes OWL, provides software developers with an easy pathway to develop OS/2 applications."
In addition to OWL, Borland C++ 2.0 for OS/2 includes other features that aid in application design. The Presentation Manager-hosted Integrated Development Environment (IDE) allows developers to edit, compile and debug OS/2 applications quickly; the Resource Workshop provides developers with additional tools such as bitmaps, icons, dialogs, and menus to visually create OS/2 resources; and the ObjectBrowser offers an easy-to-understand graphical display of application class hierarchies, including multiple inheritances. Borland C++ 2.0 also includes Turbo Debugger, Turbo Assembler, Runtime library source code, and OWL source code.
