VS2003.Net Enterprise Architect
For a long time userstyle programmers of VC++ up to 6.0 could not use some useful free libraries like Blitz, Boost and so on. New compiler in VS2003.Net is much more friendly with ANSI and allows to deal with such libraries. Some ports to VS already can be found. For example Rani's Loki library port. Can somebody explain me how to work with Blitz library if i have downloaded distribution kit and VS itself. Is it necessary to wait port?
In theory, you should be able to just take the straight blitz or loki libraries and use them as-is, no port required.
Indeed it was as Chris Tavares said. No special port needed. At least some non-significant corrections. It's very pleasant that new .Net compiler became more ANSI friendly.
And the irony is that, now that it's fixed, almost everybody I knew who complained loudly about it (myself included) over the last 5 years has now moved on and isn't using C++ any more.
