as many of you know, the Visual Studios 2005 "Express" edition is available for free download on the MS site. I got a copy of everything up there, started compiling some of my own projects in the new version just to see if they would work, and found weirdness.
The C string functions are declared with a "DEPRECATED" type. The compiler gives warnings when you use them as well.
Can anyone offer an explanation other than the "Micro$oft is the devil!" response? Actually, I'm wondering if this is a C or C++ spec thing. Prelude? you out there?
