Who was the inventor of Turbo C?
Wizard C, developed by Bob Jervis, was bought by Borland which released it as Turbo C Version 1 in 1987. Version 2 was released in 1989. There were no further releases of Turbo C as development then shifted towards Turbo C++, which was developed outwith Borland but under contract. Turbo C++ Version 1.0 was released in 1990. The product was then completely re-written in-house (led by Peter Kukol) and re-branded as Borland C++ before becoming Borland C++ Builder. In 2009, Borland sold off its CodeGear division to Embarcadero Technologies, and Borland C++ Builder then became C++ Builder. The current version is C++ Builder XE2.
