Are you asking how Visual C++ is different than C++?

Basically it isn't.

VC 6.0 is mostly standard C++ compliant.  So most standard C++ programs will compile correctly under VC 6.0 and most standard C++ programs written under VC 6.0 will compile under any other standard compiler.

Like most compilers, VC still is not 100% standard, but it improves with each version.  The biggest weakness is templates, which it does a fairly good job of handling, but does not necessarily handle the most advanced features of templates.

So basically VC IS a standard C++ compiler.  But it is also more that that.  it is a programming environment that allows you to write C++ programs a little more easily.  Like it has tools that help you fill in parameters as you write the code and it has wizards for creating projects and classes.  But all of this stuff is optional and all of this stuff simply creates C++ source code.  So VC is not somthing different than C++, it is yust a tool to help you write C++ code.

VC is nice in some respects for beginners, because it has very good on-line help.  But on the down-sides it is a very big program with lots of features to get bogged down in.  There are books on using VC and I would strongly recommend you get them, like VC 6 unleashed.  You also must have a basic C++ text or two.  Neither the VC help or these VC books teach you how to write in C++, they teach you how to use VC.
