There's quite a difference between Visual C++ and C++. The first is a
Windoze creation, the second platform independent, like the difference
between Basic and Visual Basic.
When you get to the interface, it becomes a choice between using
the tools an operating system offers or finding a C library that does
what you want on both. Just a few years back I got interested in
adapting some FORTRAN programs to the pc. Ran into the same
problem, find some display routines to call, or write a display
machine in FORTRAN, which I know well, or try learning another.
I think finding a library of display routines is the better route.
