C++ Question

c++ in visual studio

I'm learning C++ but I have seen that Visual Studio has Visual C++. I searched about the difference but I haven't found anything satisfying.

The only thing I found was, that Visual C++ is a version of C++ but with more libraries. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

So I have two questions:


  1. What's the difference between C++ and Visual C++?

  2. And can I write normal C++ in Visual Studio? If I can't write normal C++ in Visual Studio, where do I write it the best in.



I want to try to make some small games.

Answer

C++ is a programming language and Visual C++ is a Microsoft's C++ compiler.

Visual C++: less portable, but has specialized libraries which may make you stick with Windows.
