    Starting out by skipping chapters !

    Heya guys,

    I haven't registered yet as I'm still struggling with C/C++ in general.

    Problem is that I have a fairly decent amount of experience using the Win32Api in other languages and only limited experience with C/C++.

    So, I'd love to learn C/C++ but I really do NOT want to code any crappy PhoneBook commandline tools to start with.

    Rushing immediately into C Windows programming makes me realize that I don't know how to declare vars and that I'm missing some fundamental basics which is fatal. ( Of course )

    So, Question:

    Anyone knows a good place to start with C/C++ using the WinApi and therefore skipping that crappy commandline ??

    Heh, Thanks... Meanwhile I also found The Forgers Tuts which do more or less the same thing.

    Maybe you should just bite the bullet and do the crappy phonebook app.

    I think if understand the syntax or C++, and spend some time of the basics- not the very simple basics- you can save time in learning the advanced things.
