    allegro @ msvc

    hi!

    i heard that the allegro library is best supported by the djgpp compiler. but i have some problems compiling all my files with djgpp so i prefer to use my ms vc++ 5.0 program to write my c programs.

    is there a way to use the allegro library (allegro.h) in my programs when i use ms vc++ 5.0? i don't think that the allegro library has been exclusively written for djgpp, isn't it?

    thanks!

    Why don't you just use way better libraries than Allegro such as Win32 or MFC? There is no reason to have MSVC++5. You can get a introductory edition of MSVC++6 with many books. Infact VS.NET is now available in Beta. I think that VC++5 is about a million years old.

    *sigh* i just use this for learning...

    i have the Microsoft Visual Studio.NET Beta 2 here...
    is there any expiration date in this software or can i use all functions for any time?

    i am quite new the mother of all newbies...

    don't you think i can work better with the vc++5 learning edition and djgpp?

    If you have Win2k professional than install the DVD. It is way easier to use than DJGPP or MSVC++5. It has a million times the help capasity, including dynamic help. If you do not have Win2k or WinXP (which is not officially released yet) than do not install it.
