  • Question

  • I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this but let's give it a go. I've been reading quite alot lately about C++/CLI and it is completely new to me. Some say that it is the way to go. What is your opinion? Should I start getting into it?

    The way to go to do what? It depends on what your goal is.

    C++/CLI is best suited for bridging the managed and unmanaged programming world. There is a very narrow range of applications that fall into this niche. If you are thinking of developing managed applications, then C# is "the way to go".

    Here's a "free chapter" from a book I authored :

    The first few pages should explain what C++/CLI can do for you.
