    Not much unless you are using Mfc or C++.NET(evil). If you want to do web stuff you should look into VB or C#. Or are you talking about the backend stuff like databases and such?

    No. At most c++ can be used to develop dlls to encapsulate database access.

    Main developing tools for the internet are scripting languages and markup languages.

    [edit] Oh! and one of the most used scripting languages is exactly VBScript which is a subset of that language you don't like [/edit]

    hmmm

    you either mean two things:

    programing to make a website:
    Done mainly with html with specials like php and:
    cgi which allows you to use perl or c to do things with forms but php does it better.

    programming to access other computers:
    search for sockets on the board

    Uhm, let's see, you can use C++ to create browsers, send/receive e-mail programs or function(s), and file transfer applications among others I think.

    CGI is similar to java and/or java script and html.
