MS Visual c++ .net question

P: n/a
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

Re: MS Visual c++ .net question
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.
