    CLR Console vs Form Application

    If you read long .txt files and do calculations on these. Say that you will read a .txt-file from a CLR console application and this is reading 1 txt file, saving values to arrays and do calculations that will take 1 Minute.

    If you do the same from within a Windows Form Application. Shouldn´t it be now difference or is the speed slower here or is it not possible to do such a comparison.

    The speed should be the same. However if the application involves a lot of output I think its possible the console application runs slower since output to the console is notoriously slow when compared to a GUI. Don't know however if this also holds true for managed code.

    Meanwhile... I don't know if anyone told you before but if you are programming for the CLR, including windows forms, you are not developing in C++. You are developing managed code. You should be asking question on the C# or Windows forums.

    Depends on whether it's C++/CLI or C#. Both works, but I do recommend C#.
    And Windows Forms is the managed equalient of GUI.
    CLR Console is the managed equalient of console application.
    So they both are Managed and both are about as slow.
