Dither,

If you are a newbie, here's my honest advise: Don't waste your time with BC++. Go directly on MSVC. After all MSVC is the leading product in C++ development (and it seems things won't change for a while) and BC is slowly becoming a history. Make a wise decision and choose the right way earlier instead of learning a whole bunch of Borland stuff and then try to learn the Microsoft's way of doing things.

FWIW, MSVC is the leading product in C++ development for Windows only.  It's not even a player in any other C++ market.

Almost all compiler-specific language usage in C++ is counterproductive in the end.  You end up with a program which you can compile with only one compiler.  While the compiler manufacturer may be happy with this, it's usually a handicap for a successful program (a working definition of "successful" here is, has a lifetime of several years or is used on many kinds or systems).

The language is now standard enough in any case to make this unneccesary (modulo unavoidable extensions such as __far and _xhuge).  Hence techniques learned in criting C++ under Borland's compilers will still be useful with MSVC.  It's only the actual running of the compiler that you'd need to learn in order to use MSVC.

The only exception I can think of is #pragmas (or erquivalent) to select automatic template instantiation method (because the caller has no explicit instantiation statements).
