Hello. I have programmed in C++ and Java for a while now and I love the fact that you can make an Applet in Java and that way other people can access your programs. Is there a way that a C++ program can be put on the internet? I know I could just send people the files, but I would much rather have them play my game on the internet. Is that possible?

The reason that's so easy to do with Java is that Java doesn't compile into machine language (which is platform-dependant), but into bytecode (platform-independant), which is interpreted by your web browser's java plugin (for example).

Well, you could use winforms.

type "hosted winforms" into a search engine, that will give you enough stuff to read.

You can write winforms in (managed) C++.

But, there are some drawbacks:

It would only work in windows.
And even in windows, only with IE.
And the users need to have the .net framework installed.

OK, there is Mono, but I don't know how it behaves with hosted forms etc.
