Hi there,

I have started to write c and c++ programs using the visual c++ IDE, although I have no idea why visual c++ offers users the ability to build and/or compile a piece of code, when building the code in-order to debug the code creates an executable in the Debug folder.

I am fairly sure that there must be a reason for offering users the ability to compile and/or build a piece of code, and not just offering the build operation. Therefore if anyone could inform me as to the use of having both operations available in this IDE I would be grateful.

Thanx in advance,
