    C++ under windows?

    Can someone please tell me a good book to learn this.
    Also, while I can do basic C++, I am a bit vague about the meaning of C++ under Windows. Is it the same with programming MFC with Visual C++?

    Thanks & sorry for the Newbie questions.

    No, it's just one of many different ways.

    Widget toolkit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Windows API - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Also Win32 != GUI programming. There are different kinds of programming which do not involve manipulating pixels on the screen.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
