Question
sir;
pls explain me the difference between the release and debug build. currently i am working in vc++(MFC).
wat is RTTI? Any significance in release bulid?


Answer
Debug build is used for verification of assertions. It is useful for fast debugging. Release build is made for better performance than debug build. For an excellent article on debug and release builds refer to http://www.dotnetheaven.com/Uploadfile/mahesh/DebugaRelease05192005033225AM/Debu and http://www.codeproject.com/debug/survivereleasever.asp
 
RTTI is a concept related to object orientation and has nothing to do with build. For information on RTTI see http://www.nacs.uci.edu/dcslib/sun/compilers/c-plusplus/c++_ug/RTTI.doc.html
