    anyone have visual studio 2008?

    and does it support variadic templates?

    can't find it anywhere on the web, but i just got off the phone with someone who said it did. he said it was " on msdn somewhere". i can't find it anywhere in here: Templates

    yes i know gcc supports it, but using the borland VCL the MFC is a big advantage in creating GUIs. unless those crafty GNUs have created a similar crossplatform GUI library, that's prohibitively time consuming.

    No, since the variadic templates feature is not expected to be supported by MSVC10 (MSVC9 is the compiler for Visual Studio 2008). Read this C++0x language feature checklist thread on another online community.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    I don't think most of them intentionally lie, I think they just don't know anything and hope for the best. I think too many of the kids today that want into sales are being taught that helping the customer is first in sales. Not true, understanding your product is first, if you don't understand the produc there is no way you can help the customer. I always try to trip up teh sales people, the first time they tell me an un-truth they lose teh sale. I would rather a sales person tell me they don't know than to tell me what they think I want to hear and waste my time with an insufficient product.
