    If you have a little example RR plugin written in C++ that would be cool !

    i dont... sorry...
    you would have to learn about com object programming...
    its much much much much harder to do in C++....
    dont see the point...

    RR is written in Visual Basic if I am not mistaken?

    Would be nice if it were rewritten in Visual Basic .net but that would require a full rewrite...

    Since it is written for a PC and won't run on anything else you might consider C# which is sort of a mixture of C++ and .net. No point in writing in C++ unless you are going to port it over to other computers since C# is MUCH more compact and much faster to write than C++.
    I believe RR should let you include just about any binary as a plugin so you should be fine?

    i agree with mitch, C++ is not for the faint of heart, not trying to say you wont be able to handle it, but is the hardest coding language to work with. unless you have plenty of time to learn it if not, avoid it. i have been reading about C++ for quite some time, and yet i go C# or vb.bet at the end. all i have done was add some stuff to activewinamp source and that was done most of it already. have a look to that it uses com object, so you can have a starting point there.

    C++ actually is not any harder than any of the other languages. Realistically C# is MUCH more complicated to learn from my current experience. HOWEVER with C++ you will have to do most of the writing yourself where as the other languages simplify steps with routines or built in libraries that do it for you. C++ is the most universal language out there. You can write code for Windows PC's, Linux/WebOS/Android and many of the embedded OS's use C++ as their code base. I am unfamiliar with Mac/iOS but I am assuming they can also use C++ to write for them as well. It really boils down to the differences in the libraries supported by each different type of computer. Also, C/C++ is the model most of the common languages use to start out with. But as an example, you can use C# and some .net code and write a routine in like 3 lines that may take you 30 in C++.
