    Smile Moving from Turrbo C++ to VC++

    Hi,
    I am posting this for the second time. The first time i posted in the Windows programming section. Though this would be a better place to post.

    Anyway here it goes,

    I have been using turbo c++ 3.0 for some time now. I usually program in C. Now i want to start migrating to C++ with the VC++ environment. I need your help on sugesting a good book which teaches me the VC++ environment as well as C++.

    I have a single tip: Move stepwise -- first move to C++. Then move to Visual C++ (and windows programming).

    Moving to C++ : Become proficient in use of classes and streams (streams is a very important topic too!) Also, learn about STL. You'll be surprized that linked-list, deque, stack, vectors, etc. are readily-available in C++ when you have spent so many hours building them and maintaining them in C.

    Recommended Book: There are 4 different books by Robert Lafore. Search and get one of them. This is enough for good theoretical base for concepts. Another book on STL (one by Musser is quite good) you should buy LATER. (first master C++, then move on to STL).

    Rest all depends on your practice.

    Theres a HUGE difference. One is a program( VC++ ) one is a programming language (C++) :-D
