Is there another aplications like Lazarus or it is Unique
« on: November 27, 2006, 09:07:05 pm »
While browsing to some free languages - legally free ones - I couldn't find as legally free languages as Lazarus in such a great level of construction. It is free for non- comercial and for comercial use, it can do perfect graphic aplications for both windows and linux, it has alot of classes, many components. It is awasom. Is there such progs for other languages like c, java, basic, prolog, maybe other? If you know please tell me about them. Thanks in regards.

Well, the language is "object pascal" (the same as Delphi uses, and the same on which Mac OS up to version 7 was written). Lazarus is the IDE.

c and c++ programmers don´t usually use RAD IDEs. Mostly they write everything on code. There are some clumsy form designers, but they are extremely primitive or suffer from many problems (like you design only once, and cannot use the designer again on the same file, need to regenerate all code if you do that).

The best you will find for c++ is Qt. But then it´s extremely expensive for non-GPL software, 2000 euros per programmer per platform.

For Java there are NetBeans from sun and Eclipse. Both work good.

Prolog is used for scientific computing in universities mostly. I doubt it can benefit from a RAD IDE. It´s not utilized to write GUIs.

-Gambas (for Linux and BSD only) - if you like Basic
-SharpDevelop (for Windows only) - if you want to program .NET, besides C# and VB.NET there is a language called Boo included. It's a very nice language, similar to Python
-Monodevelop (Linux only) - if you want to program Mono, similar to SharpDevelop
-Boa Constructor -  crossplatform, for Python. Good looking, but without data-aware controls...

Still dont compare to Lazarus:

and the data aware components.

I agree:)
Data aware components are really great advantage of Lazarus, comparing to other open-source RADs.
