Just wanted to see what other programmers out there are using (hardware, but mainly software). My setup at work: PIII 600 w 256 MB RAM We're running Microsoft Visual Studio, but we have a few guys who swear by Borland C-Builder (and even one guy who is using CodeWarrior ) Pretty much spend most of my day in Visual C++, hitting VB when necessary for writing Active X controls. What tools do you use to aid in your programming? I've been using Purify alot recently... its a must have! It picks out potential memory leaks, etc... Also use Microsoft's Dependency Walker alot. I usually have Visual C++ installed as my default debugger, changing over to Dr. Watson when I need a report generated. What environment are you programming in?
