With such a large change in the way Visual C++ applications are written within Visual Studio .NET, it should come as no surprise that Microsoft has added several language features to accommodate writing applications for the .NET framework while still maintaining the ability to create older Visual C++ application types. Through the addition of new language keywords, attributes, preprocessor directives, and new compiler and linker switches, the ability to create such differing styles of applications makes the task much easier.
In this hour's lesson, you will learn about the new special features for writing .NET applications in Visual C++ .NET.
Specifically, in this hour you will learn:
New language keywords
Attributes and how they are defined
Pragmas that specify managed or unmanaged code
