    Question Win32 and MFC

    Besides being a "wrapper" for win32 what does MFC do (Microsoft foundation classes).

    BTW is all API's that makes it possible to make windows applications based on win32?(SDL)
    Well english isn't my first language, (it's instead a useless language called danish which only 5 milion people speak!!) so if you think my grammar SUCKS (it does by the way) than you're more then welcome to correct me.
    Hell I might even learn something

    MFC "overview".

    There are many different libraries/API's for creating window'ed programs. If the library runs in MS Windows, then it uses win32 "under the hood".

    By "window'ed programs", I meant a program that uses a graphical user interface......that can be on Linux (or any *nix) or Mac or Microsoft (MS) Windows.

    I gave you that link so you can read what MFC is all about. MSDN is Microsoft Developers Network - basically, online help.
