I have Turbo C++ 3.0, and after trying it, I could obviously tell that it has a dos interface.  I am new at Turbo C++ and I want to know all the differences in Turbo C++ 3.0 and the newest C++.

Turbo C++ is used to write DOS based application thus you can use the old seg:off scheme,,,

You can write graphics in Mode13h when using TC++ and so on.,, and in VC++ you can't do that...

the newest C++ compiler is VC++ for windows and it is used for Windows based apps and the interface is also win interface... In VC++ you use the flat model memory mapping...

That's about it. If you need more info let me know....

You can't really get any better than Viktor's answer.

C++ is a generic term.  There are many implementations of C++ available recently, such as Visual C++ or C++ Builder.

What Turbo C++ and Visual C++ have in common is C++.  Any C++ program should compile on both of them.  However, a program written specifically for one will not compile on the other, because these compilers each add their own extensions to the C++ language.  Many of these are OS specific. Turbo C++ compiles for DOS and Visual C++ compiles for Windows, so chances are you can't mix the two.
