Metrowerks CodeWarrior 8

Metrowerks latest release of its acclaimed CodeWarrior Develop­­ment Tools provides enhance­ments to the C/C++/Java programming environment.

With the new code completion feature, you can write complex pieces of code quickly with fast access to various functions and symbols.

Customisable workspaces and docking windows let you create an environ­ment where you feel most comfortable. A very useful multimedia tutorial explains how to get the best use out of these tools.

A big selling point for CodeWarrior 8 is that users can develop for Windows and Mac platforms using the same development environment. There are also CodeWarrior 8 implementations for Linux, Palm OS, and Motorola platforms.

CodeWarrior’s ability to produce compact and efficient code is thanks to its industry-leading ANSI/ISO/C/C++ compiler. Other impressive features include the customisable text editor, inter­active debugger and sophisticated project manager (See here for a screenshot example).

Students new to programming can benefit from a simplified academic Code­Warrior product that is easier to use, and take advantage of a significantly cheaper price. Check out the Metrowerks site for more information on academic pricing.

CodeWarrior positives include the ability to develop simultaneously for Mac and Windows environments even with only the Windows version, and the handy code completion feature. Drawbacks include the fact that it’s really only suited for ex­peri­enced programmers.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
