is there something like printf("point1"); which i can use to print some text in the window,where i get the compiling errors,etc. ? i need it for debugging. or is there some way to do normal vc++ debugging in fullscreen mode ?

I believe you can ouput to the compiler''s debug window by using std::cerr:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main(int, char*)
cerr << "something important" << endl;
cerr << "something else" << endl;

For debugging in fullscreen mode with the debugger visible, you can either set up another video card and monitor for your computer or "remote" debug over a LAN with another computer running the debugger.

You can use the Win32 API function OutputDebugString() to display a string in your debug window.

Also, if you display the message using this format:

filename(linenumber): your message here

then you can double click on the message and it will take you to the file/line number the message was displayed at, just like you can with compile errors (it's the same format).
