How can a pre C++98 library be the wave of the future?


As I said in my posting, by betting on the right architectural horse from the outset. Microsoft did with MFC, but didn't with C# which was a corporate knee-jerk response to java. Whereas C++ is based on the International Standards Organization.

C++20 will have Concepts, which it has taken Bjarne Stroustrup, creator of C++, 15 years to hatch and get through the committees, it will have coroutines, it will have, modules, more compile-time C++ constexpr, etc. etc. Don't know what these are? Then you are probably asleep programming in derivative semantic definition languages.

What do ATL/MFC have to do with that? Simple. ATL/MFC are written in C++. And by the way, the next generation of C++ based ATL/MFC apps are on their way. Plus, Microsoft to their credit, has developed ARM64 which is a non-emulating translator opening the field of non-cross-compiling for other platforms but same (C++) code. My point is, being pre C++98 doesn't make the language non C++17 or C++20-able. That's a big difference between it and scripting languages or ones with runtime modules. Let's face it. Microsoft is a bumbling hero in my book. Fabulous technology, but what a price it took to get there.
