    Question Finishing up

    I am finishing up a small console app to prove to my computer lab teacher that I know basic C++. I would really like to make it look nice. Is it possible to make an icon for a console app? I have MSVC++ 6 and I've seen the little icon drawer but I don't have a clue about how to put the icon with my app. I don't even know how to switch it from debug. My help file isn't working! Does anyone know how to do this or where I could find it out?

    you have to add your icon as a resource on your msvc, then, you have to load it on your app, takes a few more works, msdn has more info.

    I can create the resource but is there a command like

    #include <blahblah.rc>

    that I should use to link the resource to my app?
