[/.] Borland Turbo tools are back!

Shortly after the original IBM PC appeared, a tiny upstart company with the big name Borland International rocked the programming world by releasing its Turbo Pascal compiler. [...] Turbo Pascal's Integrated Development Environment allowed the programmer to go seamlessly from editing to compiling to debugging – and at $49.95 it cost less than a tenth of the going rate. Both cheap and effective, it opened the world of programming to everybody.

Today Borland announces a revival of the Turbo Pascal spirit with its new line of Turbo development tools.,1895,2000232,00.asp

I taught myself C in Jr. High using Borland Turbo C 2.0. It's still my favorite programming environment. Its best feature was that you could right-click on any keyword or function, and it would pop up a window with full documentation - including working example code. A fast and astonishingly easy way to learn a programming language.
