Re: .NET platform for stand alone applications..

I was reading with increased interest the performance stats of VB.NET versus VB 6 ... I however foster deep ignorance of the Microsoft world and the dev. environment. My understanding about the .NET platform is that it is 99 percent net centric i.e. geared towards the internet application realm. Is...

They provide some numbers but I'm not sure about the testing methodology ie there may be some flaws. Ultimately, using the lower level C++ language will allow you to t...

The reason I ended up coding my own testing platform in C++ is that I hate to have limitations imposed on my testing. I also like to have really fast tools. I don't like to wait; I want testing to be fairly interactive, not test, wait, wait, wait, think of new test, test, wait, wait... Hi Forum Mgm...
