console apps

Recommended Posts

This may be a silly question, but i''ll ask it anyway. i''m a student in a programming program plus i do programming on my own... most of my applications will be developed for the win32 platform, but... i still use the old console apps every once in a while for testing and such. In those cases i usually develop on a *nix platform, but i still like making use of my console apps on win98. If i were to upgrade to say win2k or winXP, can i still develop console apps? or do they only run in true dos mode? and is there a workaround for that? commando_337

Console Apps in Win98 aren''t really dos programs.
You can create the same Console Apps in Win2k or XP.

Would you be able to elaborate on that... i must have misunderstood the definition of a console application.

A console application is simply a character-mode application. In Win32, console apps are fully 32 bit. It has nothing to do with DOS. Yes, you can develop console apps in Win2k and WinXP.
