    I usually play Warcraft 3 online, and that was made in C++ (+assembly and some other) .

    I think they mean like a java applet, where you can play it off the internet w/o actually downloading the program to your hard drive.. (or like a flash game... )

    So you can upload C++ to a website the same way you would upload anything else? Dude, that's cool! I just wrote my very first game, I'll have to get it up on the internet, it's not very good though.

    Right....AFAIK. Search at http://www.hotscripts.com in the C/C++ and/or the Perl directory....I've seen some stuff on there before.

    Cool A subducker is here :-)

    Ok guys, I've never posted here before. I hang out at
    www.subduck.com check it out nice site.
    Lets get to the subject. Moonwalker, confused by this thread here ask (at subduck's forums) if there is a way to run C++ from the web. When we told him NO he gave us link to this forum.
    Some people here say u can run a C++ code on your browser ?
    C++ is compiling language. Once you compile you have an object file. Once the object file is linked by the linker you have executable. Java on another hand has interpreter that "translates" the java code to machine language. Most browsers have such interpretor build in (or you can add it to yours). They download the code and the interpretor translates each instruction to machine code. C++ does not have that. There are some other languages that use C++ syntax. JavaScript for example. That is not C++. I guess you can upload executable on the server and run it, but it will run on the server not on your machine.
    So in two words: C++ does not run on web pages.
    That was more than 2 words but... .
    By the way, using typos and/or sms type of abreviations is not cool at all. It is difficult for the others to understand. Using them does not make u cool . If you want to learn something about the hacker's culture check out this:
    http://www.l0t3k.org/biblio/hacking/...ker-howto.html
    Stay cool !
    p.s
    I am just trying to help here. No hard feelings OK ?

    Rubbish! And I count more than 2 words in that statement!!

    If you code an active component in C++ you can create instances and call members using a scripting language....therefore, the code I write in C++ can be executed on a web page

    Oh and here's a quick activeX example I just threw together. Compiles with VC++6.

    Build it, that will register the component....the run the html file in internet explorer
