    Beginner on Win32 apps, lame question.

    Im a beginner on win32 apps. All ive done till now are console apps, so u know what im going through :\

    My question is lame and simple: Is there any point on sticking to C or its time for me to learn C++ if i wanna do small win32 winsock apps?

    Any help would be great

    No, thank god i already know the difference between win32 API and winsockets

    Maybe i wasnt clear in my question: Im a beginner on C, doing console apps for DOS and Linux, and suddenly i have to develop a small number of tcp/ip "windowed" programs (like a visual traceroute for example). I got some tutorials on working with the API and all of them are made with C++ examples And the examples of TCP/IP programs i could find on the net are also made with C++.

    So it makes me think if i should really do it in C. Would things be easier if i try to learn C++?
