    C++ can do just about anything, you can make windows programs, games, network programs, operating systems. Just about anything.

    A better question would be "What can't C++ do?"

    That IS a good question Endo. You guys should all go find the answer lest ye be disillusioned into thinking that C++ can do EVERYTHING. ASM would be a good place to start looking.

    C++ has a way to do almost EVERYTHING and a good part of it is, if it isn't able to do something (I don't know what it can't do), it is very simple to put in assembly language the way C++ is setup. You can do it in other languages too, but it's easier to do in C++, just type in asm (or _asm or __asm, depending on your compiler)

    C++ was written in a form of c++ wasn't it? I mean the first c++ compiler. I read somewhere that there was an extended version of c made, then the first c++ compiler was made from that.

    All of your languages are built ontop of Win32. So the bottom line is Win32, and Win32 was written in C and parts of it are accessible as C functions, other parts are accessible as strangely constructed C++ objects. Microsoft programmers don't use standard C++.

    of course not, m$ likes to set their own standards that nobody likes to follow and is horribly documented. anyways, you can find a way to do virtually anything with your computer using c++, ahhh!! feel the power now?!

    Actually you'd be surprised, my C++ skills have got so good now that my code can make a cup of tea!! Might have to try the sandwich thing though, sounds like fun
