Portable (as in literally) C++ compiler/IDE?

P: n/a

Hello, does anybody know of a good C++ compiler/IDE combo that would
work
from a USB key? I was using VS2003 and would like to use VC++ Express,
but the chances of those working fof a USB key are slim. Basically I
don't
want tho host machine molested. I'm not even sure if that's possible,
but
any suggestions would help.
Cheers,

Gordy.

I think Digital Mars would work, at least for the compiler. You'd have
to check with Walter, or on the Digital Mars website about the IDE part.

This guy has packaged a portable version of Dev-Cpp for USB stick
which seems to work perfectly & doesn't effect the host machine at
all. It's completely contained within the USB stick.

Thanks all, I'll have a look at these. I should've mentioned
that I was developing for Windows, though I suppose using VC++
would suggest that. Anyway, shouldn't be a problem with dev-cpp
anyway. I'll look at Eclipse/CDT and Digital Mars as well.

Cheers,
