advice needed vb.net/c++

P: n/a
Hi Group,

After the christmas holiday I have to start with creating a vb.net program
but this program allready exists as a c++ program but it needs to be
rewritten in vb.net on some pieces of code need to be re-analysed. But the
problem is I'm not very familiar with c++ (read: no experience at all) I
have some experience with Java so this maybe can help me a little, but my
question is:what do you guys advice me to read to get up to speed with c++
methods, declarations and stuff

thanks in advance and happy holiday's

Peter,

Converting an application by using the source is in my opinion never a good
idea, you need to convert what it has to do. When you convert it, you get no
better things than what the old could and set all new possibilties asside.

In your place I just would ask for the documentation. And you have now a
good reason to tell why.

And when busy just test what the old did of course.

And when you are than really in trouble, ask that in the C# newsgroup as it
was a C# question and not VBNet. Translating the solution from C# to VBNet
is a piece of cake.

:-)

Just my thought,

Thanks for the tip Cor,

but I allready wasn't planning to convert it by the sourcecode because it
isn't a "good" program, but the problem is that the c++ program has a lot of
hard coding in it (parameters and stuff) and sometimes I'll have to go look
inside the c++ code and I'm afraid I will not understand everything that's
inside the code but if that happens I'll ask it in the c++ newsgroup and
hopefully that group is as helpful as this one :-)

Wrap you exist as .Net Assembly (class) and you can reuse it in either
VC++.Net, C# or VB.NET.
