    Is there any difference in visual c++ with c++? In a C++ book I have read, to do a binary search, there should be in the program #include "BinarySearch.h". However, in the visual c++ application, it does not read that header, or the application does not recognize it, or it says that there's no such system.

    Re: Please help me clarify this

    In common terms Visual C++ is an extended Library for C++ for GUI in Windows and is better known as MFC or Microsoft Foundation Classes

    There is no difference when it comes to using Visual C++ for your C++ programs and excluding the MFC libraries
