CppLangFeat Sample: Language Features Overview

This sample demonstrates key concepts of features in C++ that support the .NET Framework and expose the capabilities of the common language runtime (CLR). The sample presents snippets of code for each language feature, and shows typical ways to use the C++ syntax. You can build and run the sample. For best results, use debugger breakpoints to walk through the code so that you can better understand how the features work.

Security noteSecurity Note

This sample code is intended to illustrate a concept, and it shows only the code that is relevant to that concept. It may not meet the security requirements for a specific environment, and it should not be used exactly as shown. We recommend that you add security and error-handling code to make your projects more secure and robust. Microsoft provides this sample code "AS IS" with no warranties.
