hi eveyone,

my first post...:)

my second yr in CS and i decided to start working on VC++ while all C++ i learned and practice is on unix systems using gcc compiler.

im using Microsoft Visual Studeio.NET academic verson ver 2003.

i keep on getting weird error messages although code is compiles and runs just fine w gcc ....

any suggestion to how can this switch process be less painful ?
tutorials or/and any kind of help should be appreciated.

What errors are you getting?
Most likely you either have some configuration problems (path settings, compiler flags) in VC++ or you have been using libraries that are specific to GCC and therefore unavailable to VC++.
