 Hi C++ experts,

     I am hoping I ask this qestion in the right category .... If not, please let me know where should I put it .....

     This is a general concept question. In this forum, I saw a lot of people's code have <conio.h> and <window.h>, but I have never seen it in my system (linux or unix). Are there any header files corresponding to these two ? Or do they belong to MFC only ? or ...?

     Also, what's the main difference between C++ and MFC (well ..... I am hoping this is not a horrible and stupid question ... but I really don't know .....).

    Thanks very much !!!

'conio.h' is a pretty old way of doing DoS console I/O, 'windows.h' is the standard Windwos header file - both are platform specific.

>>Also, what's the main difference between C++ and MFC

MFC is a GUI class library for Win32 by MS.

You won't find those on Linux/ UNIX. Use Tck/Tk for graphics on Linux.

Don't be silly.  MFC exists for UNIX.

Oh, it's not free.  It's pretty expensive, I think.  But if you want to try it, fill out the eval form:
