    VC++ vs. C++ Builder and general things


    Ok I know Builder has the nice RAD tool, but what other differences are there
    between the two? What should I learn to get going?

    Does your book (Morrison) cover C++ in general? Visual C++? MFC? OWL?

    Would this book begin at the beginning or somewhere more advanced? I've
    had two classes in C++ but I learned more in just one month of reading on
    my own than two semesters of classes...still I feel like a total beginner
    (I can do much much more in VB, in C++ I am happy if I can get a simple console
    app running decently). I have a handle on arrays, classes, and such, however
    there are so many things that I need to learn (many of which seem like they
    should have been covered by now) that I can't even begin to list them all.
    So I'm starting to get a bit frustrated at this point

    Excuse me if I am making no sense I just spent the entire evening struggling
    with a C++ book which contained two pages of completely incorrect information
    (I almost ripped the thing in half when I finally figured out that they had
    reversed some things).

    Ok off to bed thanks for any help/answers

    Mark,
    I can sympathize with your struggle learning C++. In fact I went through the
    same experience myself. That's exactly why I wrote this book in fact.
    Learning C++ just shouldn't be that hard if you already know VB. My book
    starts at the beginning and works up from there. The book uses VC++ for
    development. I teach you how to create console apps at first, and then
    progress on to DLLs and COM components.
    As far as differences between C++ Builder and VC++, well I can't say. I have
    only used VC++. However, if you already know VB then my book will definitely
    fast-track you on the road to C++. Happy coding! :-)
