    Re: c++ vs VisualC++

    In theory, there is no difference. C++ is the language and VC++ is a
    development environment for that language. However, in practice VC++
    also supports proprietary frameworks and APIs for Windows such as MFC,
    ATL, Win API and others which are not part of the C++ standard.
