I am currently writing a program in C++ to work out the optimal way to cut stock. I am reading the orders in from a datafile and attempting to print out the results to a printer.
I have not used visual C++ before and want to know how easy it will be to transfer the program to visual C++ and add a reasonably straightforward GUI with the following features:
1) Read in the values from a spreadsheet or grid type of format
2) Allow the user to save /load the values from/to disk
3) Send the results to a printer after being processed by my algorithm
I also have a pre written text class and list class which i want to use. Is it easy to integrate these into the visual C++ structure.
Would I use the wizard to add these features to my C++ program or do I need to put in special code myself.
I don't know if these are relatively straightforward problems or require alot of work?
