Well, I have been out of the programming loop for some time. I have picked up an interest once again but I have a dilmema. No compiler.
At one point I had MSVC 6.0 and that worked beutifully. However, upon searching Microsofts site I can't seem to find it. I can only find VC++ .net...will this suffice for my basic programming needs or do I need to search further or possibly a 3rd party site in order to buy the other compiler? I ahbe read debates about what exactly .net is and honestly I think it would be easier for me to stick with MSVC 6.0 since I can't seem to find anything clear on .net whether its good or just causes a headache.
If any of you can find a place to buy MSVC 6.0 that would be great, or the C++ .net going to be the same thing and/or better?
