Hello, and welcome to Absolute Power++! This site is dedicated to bringing you all the information and resources you could possibly want which relate to Powersoft Power++ (formerly titled Optima++). Here you will find code, sample programs, components, and even tutorials.
To those of you who are still not sure why you are here, Power++ is a RAD (Rapid Application Development) environment for Windows. It is in many ways similar to Visual Basic (though it has many more great features such as Drag 'n Drop programming), except that instead of using Basic as its language, it uses C++. In fact, the compiler used in Power++ is the award-winning Watcom C++ compiler.
I would think it very kind of you to make a link to this site from your own, but I would ask you to make the link to this page (http://www.neatech.ch/powerpp/) rather than one of this site's sub-pages in order to maintain frame integrity and URL consistency. I thank you for your time and understanding.
Please feel free to browse through any or all of the following pages which are part of Absolute Power++, or take a look at the What's New page to see what has been added to the site recently.
|What's New?||So What's New??? Updated October 2nd, 1999|
|Power++ Bugs||Power++ Bugs: Here you'll find user-submitted Power++ bugs along with possible work-arounds (if they exist).|
|Power++ News: Here you will find the latest information about your favorite development tool, Power++! Check here for information on new releases, updates, seminars on Power++, and other Power++ related events. Press releases about Power++ will also go here as well as news about this web site.|
|Power++ Components: Searching for that one component that you simply know exists somewhere... but where? This section will become the definitive Power++ component gallery on the Internet. You will also find here programs (without source) written in Power++, so you can see what others have developed with this wonderful programming environment.|
|Power++ Code: Just starting out with Power++ and need a pointer (pun intended) or two in the right direction? Here you will find code snippets, example programs, patches, updates, and add ons so that you can become the best and most knowledgable Power++ developer around.|
|Power++ Tips: We can all use an extra tip or trick to help us out in our programming endeavours. Here you will find tips of all kinds: shortcuts, cool undocumented (or sparsely documented) features, clever programming techniques, bits of code... Anything that will make programming in Power++ easier or more productive.|
|Power++ Resources: Can't find what you need on this site? Impossible!! But if you feel you must see what else is out there, this is where to go. From here you will find links to external sites and pages that relate in some way to Power++.|
|Newcomers Corner: This area, maintained by Jon Strande, is designed to give people who are new to Power++ or new to C++ a good starting place on the learning curve of both. We will be covering topics ranging from working in the IDE to basic C++ topics.|
Remember, this web site is here for you and people like you. So if you have anything that others might find useful, let me know, and I'll post it here. E-mail me, Andre Schild at a.schild(at)aarboard.ch, or fill out the following form:
Note that Power++ questions unrelated to this web site should
not be sent to me, but rather to the PowerPP Discussion List or
one of the Power++ newsgroups (see the Power++ Resources page
for more information). Since I read these lists, you will get
an answer from me if I can help, and from someone else if I can't.
