Hello, I got some codes that were developed under Borland c++ 6 about 8 years ago. Anybody tried this version on the rMBP? Do the letters, graphics and UI look nice? Thanks.

That is an antique Windows compiler - what business would you have running it on a Mac?

Adrift in a sea of possibilities
I doubt that the full suite of tools for Borland C++ 6.0 would even run on modern Windows systems, let alone OS X. If it's just the code you want to run, try it in Xcode. Shouldn't be a problem if it's straight-up C++, with no reliance on Windows UI elements, DLL's, etc. Just set up output to the terminal, set your target as "command line interface", "C++".
If your code utilized anything outside of the standard C++ libraries, game over.

It works well under Windows 7 and bootcamp on my 2010 MBP 17". I expect that it should run on the rMBP. However, the display may be ugly due to the retina display.

Please do NOT use Borland. Its terrible and innacurate.

If you want to stay Mac use XCode, Eclipse, Netbeans, etc. (I prefer XCode).

For Windows Visual Studio, Eclipse, Netbeans, etc.
