I've writen a program that simulates a heat circulation, and one of its functions performs an optimization process
which uses a lot of dynamic memory. My
question is, can I use this function exactly in a Windows application, or must I change it? I forgot to mention that I used malloc and.. NOT new and...
You simply need to re-compile the program as a Win32 Console Application. There should be no problem with using malloc and free instead of new and delete.
However, if your app uses DOS features such as the "dos.h" header or DOS-specific functions that are now obsolete, your code will need more substantial changes.
