Turbo C ++ is one of the oldest IDE for C and C++ programming languages. It was developed by Borland and its first official version was released in 1990. As I said, it’s a pretty old IDE for C/C++and it is developed based on technologies available during that time. The programmers today, generally prefer new IDE’s such as Visual Studio and Eclipse over Turbo C++. These new IDE’s are user friendly and provides more functionalities than the old school Turbo C++. Still, we know some of the programmers who still prefer to use Turbo C++ for program development.
The Turbo C++ IDE is not user friendly like the modern ones and does not support some of the Windows functionalities, or you can say Windows keyboard shortcuts.
