Agreed. It is more like going from zero to 23% of a functioning development environment.

Excluding decent compilers, what about cscope, ctags, grep, (sp)lint, gdb, doxygen and all those thousands of other tools that you need if you want to attempt some decent engineering. Scripting languages need much of this stuff too.

Honestly at this point Borland Turbo C++ running in DOSBox is more productive. Perhaps the Indian education system did get that right compared to the west.

If I ever saw a new hire using this crap, I don't think they would manage to make it through the probation period.
