Posted by jay_dee [send private reply] at June 30, 2002, 12:33:57 AM i got a book on VC++ and this whole MFC thingy, thinking that it would be cool to do some windows programing..but after looking through it i found that all it is, is just a bunch of wizards that make your code for you..i'm not all that big on making pretty windows programs(isn't that what VB is for??)and i'm wondering if it is worth it to stick it out and learn how to use VC++ and MFC or if i should keep useing my Borland c++ compiler for my windows needs?
anyways thanks and sorry if i made any typeing or spelling errors..its kinda really late...

Posted by taubz [send private reply] at June 30, 2002, 10:48:21 AM MFC is a class library. I'm not sure if learning MFC is worthwhile, but it at least it's related to real programming, and not wizards.

No, it's not. And who is bonzo?
Posted by metamorphic [send private reply] at July 05, 2002, 09:55:12 AM The VC++ compiler and IDE are very good. Error messages can be somewhat cryptic at times and the price is extortion. Apart from that its good.
