    Confession of Ignorance

    In the new VS.net...people have referred to Visual C++ as a "managed" C++, I have some suspicions as to what "managed" actually refers to. However, perhaps somebody could point me towards a good online/publication reference about this. I know that "managed" C++ is bad, but how bad?

    In .NET, the code is compiled into an intermediate language. The C# board might have some more info.

    I imagine it's Microsoft's attitude of "mine! mine! mine!!" with C++.

    Thanks for the info/references....

    There must be some people in Washington State that feel the Universe orbits around them, and if not they'll buy the gravitational fields to make it so!
