To tell you the truth, I know nothing about using Visual C++. Offcourse I know a lot of things in Visual Basic 6.0. I want to learn Visual C++ 6.0. I went to www.cplusplus.com and I downloaded some programs. They have .cpp extention. I ran them in Visual C++. But just some words were shown. If I want to execute the program or convert those texts to an .exe file, what shall I do? In fact I want to see what those texts contains. Thank you.

mojtaba parsa, Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, you have not given enough information for me to be able to answer your question. Please resubmit your question with more details or a clearer description and I will do my best to answer.

I am not familiar with www.cplusplus.com and unfortunately do not have the time to study it.
