"Hoping to bridge the gap between C++ and Internet development, Borland/Inprise is adding support for XML and HTML 4 to its development tool with the pending release of Borland C++ Builder 5."
"Really, what we're doing is marrying C++ and the latest Internet technologies," said Michael Swindell, director of product management at Borland/Inprise, in Scotts Valley, Calif. "These can be stand-alone applications from people just starting out building new sites, but more importantly, it will allow developers to take their existing business infrastructure and deploy it on the Web...."
"In addition to the C++ Builder 5 release, the company will make its C++ compiler and command-line tools available via a free download. The company also restated its commitment to porting C++ Builder to Linux via its project Kylix, which Swindell said is targeted at making sure applications developed today will work easily with Linux in the future."
