    console programming.....for example: is programming "under" DOS, your programm executes in that "black" screen that pops up, so called dos shell.....


    Win32 programming.......pretty much, easily said.....programming "under" (for) windows.......utilizing GUI (graphic user interface) technics......... in anthor words... you can use your mouse the on the output of your program, the same way u use your Windows......

    hope that helps....
