    Is C++.net more similar to C++ than C# is?
    What are the advantages and disadvantages of them?

    I have been studying C++ for the past 2 weeks and I like it but I just wanted to make sure I am not making a mistake.

    I have a goal to make a web page with forms on it to submit information to me or to the server and I was thinking I could not do that with C++ but I may be able to with C++ or C#.

    I have heard that you can make applications without the .net framework with C# but I will be tempted to use the .net stuff.

    I want a do-everything language or close to it and I was thinking that C++.net would be the closest but if I always need the .net framework for people to run my apps it is no use.

    C# is pretty much java

    Forms are probably easiest in Visual Basic - or simply javascript. For forms you might also be interested in php and/or cgi.

    Actually, I am not looking for the easiest but both pretty easy and really good and powerful.

    php (or weaker perl/cgi) It integrates easily with MySQL and is much easier for the web. Save the C++ for writing your own version of IrfanView :)

    http://www.php.net/
    and some downloads at http://www.php.net/downloads.php
    but there are many sites on the net.

    Don't miss the link to http://weblabor.hu/php-doc-chm/ for a download of the zipped .chm help files which will likely be your first manual on php. Unzip it somewhere and double click the main .chm file so you can look through it and see that php will do what you want (I assume you have IE5 or higher).
