MS Visual c++ .net question

Discussion in 'C++' started by Durham Writer, Aug 22, 2003.

  1. Hi all,
    I am trying to learn c++ for the first time, having used 'c' in the
    past. It was a long
    time ago and I'm getting back into programming. I was wondering if I could
    get some
    help regarding the ms visual languages. I have MS Visual Studio .net 2003.
    I have a
    tutorial book on MS Visual C++ .NET but it's the version before 2003. Have
    things changed
    radically such that I should not use a book designed for visual c++ .net in
    a .net 2003
    environment? I know it would be desirable to learn more about the .net 2003
    environment and
    the languages in that environment, but I'm wondering if the language itself
    c++ can be
    learned to any degree from this book.
    Thank you,
    Bruce

    In this newsgroup, "C++" means ISO standard C++.
    MS Visual C++ .NET is not C++

    Not here. Try a Microsoft newsgroup. You can find them
    from www.microsoft.com , www.groups.google.com , or www.usenet.org

    No. MS Visual C++ .NET is not C++.

    Suggest that you learn C++ itself before you try to learn MS Visual C++
    ..NET, whatever that involves.

    The MSVC++ 2003 version is a big improvement in C++ standards compliance.
    Specifically partial template specialisation was added. Since you don't know
    C++ that will mean nothing to you, which just reinforces the idea that you
    should learn some C++ first.
