    console to windows

    howdy,
    i have a program written in C++ in linux that runs just fine as a console app. it can be made to run in a dos window with some small changes.
    what is involved with making it work as a win app including all the GUI stuff.
    i have borland builder 5 with the IDE stuff but have never messed with it much.

    Thanks
    M.R.

    it depends on what it does, and how you want it to work in windows.

    console apps and windows apps are very different.

    the logic behind what you are doing is the same, but the structure of the program is very different.
