Abstract: Daily news summary for 28 September 1999. By Lisa Sandford.
Daily news summary for 28 September 1999.
You won't get a kiss from Richard Dawson, but you will be eligible to win a
free copy of Borland C++Builder Professional if you complete the Borland
C++Survey found at http://www.infopoll.com/infopoll/surveys/s4598.htm.
The survey, which asks questions about C++ development and related topics, takes
about 10 minutes to complete. Responses will remain anonymous and results will
be published once the survey period has ended, sometime before November 1.
The purpose of the survey is to gather feedback on the current features of
the Borland C++ compiler and IDE and ask users what features they would like in
future releases. Questions range from development team size to which printed
magazines users read regularly. Inprise says that responses will "have a
direct impact on future product releases."
The ten free copies of C++Builder Professional will be given away at the next
major release of the project. Prize winners will be selected by random drawings
of all eligible survey respondents and will be notified via e-mail. The drawing
will be held on November 1, 1999.
