Visual C++ Libraries Reference
The Visual C++ libraries are documented in the following references.
In This Section
Provides reference material for the ATL Library, a set of template-based C++ classes that simplify the programming of COM objects.
Provides reference material for the MFC Library, a set of classes that constitute an application framework, which is the framework of an application written for the Windows API.
ATL/MFC Shared Classes
Provides reference material for classes shared between ATL and MFC.
Miscellaneous Support Libraries
Provides reference material for libraries that provide additional support to the C++ language.
OLE DB Templates
Provides reference material for the OLE DB consumer and provider templates, a set of template classes that implement many commonly used OLE DB interfaces.
Run-Time Library Reference
Provides reference material for the C Run-Time Library, a set of routines that automate many common programming tasks that are not provided by the C and C++ languages.
Standard C++ Library Reference
Provides reference material for the Standard C++ Library implementation, a set of header files that provide functions to perform essential services such as input and output and provide efficient implementations of frequently used operations.
STL/CLR Library Reference
The STL/CLR Library is a packaging of the Standard Template Library (STL), a subset of the Standard C++ Library, for use with C++ and the .NET Framework common language runtime (CLR). With STL/CLR, you can use all the containers, iterators, and algorithms of STL in a managed environment.
Provides reference material for the Concurrency Runtime, a programming framework for C++ that simplifies the process of creating parallel applications.
Visual C++ Samples
Provides links to sample code showing the capabilities of Visual C++ and the libraries and technologies it supports.
Debugging in Visual Studio
Provides links to using the Visual Studio debugger to correct logic errors in your application or stored procedures.
Building a C/C++ Program
Provides links to topics describing building your program from the command line or from the integrated development environment of Visual Studio.
Provides links to different areas of the Visual Studio and Visual C++ documentation set.
