View Full Version : Advantages of c?
05 May 2003, 09:48
Just wondering if there is any great advantage of using a c compiler over blitz?
Is there much/any speed diference?

Yes, there is a big speed difference.
It's much harder to program in C/C++ than in Blitz Basic, but C/C++ is a professionally-used, cross-platform language.

I have already done a fair bit of c stuff on pc so should i just stick to that rather than use blitz?
what compilers are good?
is that dev cd worth buying for stormc?

What are you planning to program?

probably games and demo's more than anything.
maybe some basic 3d stuff.
would love to do a field hockey game. can't work out any good control schemes though :( need more buttons!

Blitz Basic is good - you should try it.

can you code for cd32 joypads?
i had a library for them in amos at one stage. been a while since i have used amos. can't remember if i got it working?

I'm sure there is some support for CD32 joypads in Blitz, either natively or via add-ons.
This website has lots of Blitz stuff:
