c++ vs vc++

Visual C+ = VC++
VC++ is the C++ IDE for Windows by MSoft
The difference in VC++ and VB is the same as the difference between C++ and Basic.
For a beginner, VB is a lit easier to start than VC++.
Also have a look at VC#.

c++ vs vc++

hi all,
you all forgot to say that C++ is the language programming and VC++ is the MS IDE for developping C++ based programs. Also Visual C++ is a part of Visual Studio (the classic version such as 2005 for example or the .NET version). The main thing to know about VC++ is that it provides a number of tools to design GUI (Graphical User Interfaces) which is MFC, other communications with other sources (like data bases)...
If u are trying to choose the best IDE for training, u can use VC++ (I did it myself!). But if ur target is a specific job to do with C++, it will depend on ur intentions...

I hope this helped!

c++ vs vc++

Hi,
MS for MicroSoft and IDE for Integrated Development Environement.
Concerning the differences between VC++ and VB there are a lot in principles: VC++ uses a very powerful OOP language (C++), which itself implements the possibilities of C, and the programmer has control over all the ressources he can access; but VB is visual language itself so there are always sthing masked when u program with it! Example, u can program DLL's very easily with C++ (VC++); but (as i know) it is not possible to do so with VB...
Some people (programmers) said that VB.Net is based on a completly new concepts; that it have no more the old problems that VB has always had.
But, i still think that a powerful toolbox of languages for an engineer contain (asm, C, C++ may be also SystemC).

Added after 2 minutes:

i was talk about electric and alectronic engineers. Web developpers, and Games programmers have also C#...
