delete's it? I never herd of such antics, though my experiences with the .net version of the IDE's is minimal.

Well said Bill!
Personally I don't like the Visual Studio IDE though.
VS C++ 2008 don't like C so to hell with it!
I just tried it again and yes I selected General and General empty project
when I created the project.
Then I typed in the code editor:

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
 printf("Hello World!\n");
 return 0;
}

But now way.
As soon as I type the closing brace VS deletes it...

I'm starting to think that maybe the Express Edition don't support ANSI-C.
Anyway I'm currently much happier to do my coding in EdSharp and manually
compile with GCC.

May be just me, but I'm detecting the beginning of some surliness on this
thread.  There are a number of programming languages available for us to
use. And I personally don't believe that one's choice of which language has

anything to do with that person's psyche rather than the choice of the IT
shop or what they've heard about the various languages.

C is a very good programming language, Pascal is a very good programming
language, I'm sure that Python is likewise a very good programming language.

Are each equally appropriate for each and every project, I seriously doubt
it.  But I don't think it is appropriate for anybody participating on this
thread to cast dispersions on anybody else's character.

For Pete's sake, a programming language is a tool -- not a way of life.
Some folks prefer pliers, others prefer Vice-Grips; doesn't make anybody bad

people!
