G''day, I am interested in designing and creating a CD Writing application (like a really simple version of Nero). Where can I obtain resources to learn programming or obtain sample code from? Is C/C++ sufficient to program such and application or will some assembly be required?

Well he didn't out-right say he didnt know, c++,b ut the fact that he's asking if its efficent enough or not shows his lack of knowledge int he area As far as ASM goes, usuially you don't need ASM, because its generally a BAD idea to bypass windows' drivers, unless you have your own internal drivers for all the CD burners out there

I''ve been programming Visual Basic for over 4 years and C/C++ for about 1.5 years (but I''ve moved all my knowledge from VB over so I''ve got a mega head start). As for assembly I have been programming for a week! Hehehe. Anyways, sorry for the misinterpretation...

Honestly, visual basic doesn''t count, so don''t bother mentioning it, it has absolutely no value in real programming nomatter which way you look at it

And assembly is great, its very easy to learn and use, its just been given a bad rep by kids.



Much like Visual Basic, as you ignorantly bashed in your first sentence.

Theres nothing wrong with Visual Basic, its great at what it does. Is it blazing fast object oriented game creation geared? No, of course not. Thats not what its meant for.

Its for RAD. Rapid Application Development.

And it does THAT, extremely well.

Until is was superseded by NET, anyway...which is in no way a bad thing. I can''t wait for VB.NET (not for resale copy ) to get here

I''m sorry, but I can only take so many OCX and runtime errors before I start hating VB for what it is.. an OCX wrapper. If you want rad, use Delphi, at least that generates real executables.
