Hi all.

Just one (maybe not so simple to answer) question: What are the pros and
cons of gcc and cfront from AT&T?

The reason for my question is that I've had a lot of problems with gcc
(vsn. 2.5.8, the newest version 2.6.x doesn't seem to better) and I was
wondering if cfront would solve my problems. I use a lot of templates,
inheritance etc., and it seems that gcc fails when these things get just a
little bit complex.

Any thoughts and comments would be appreciated, I may have to persuade my
Sysop to invest in cfront :-).

Cheers, Jens.
