    I'm not sure what kind of use you can make of an OpenGL book when you're baffled over chapter 1 of Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days, much less an OpenGL book of which it's material is freely available from the author's site, could you please enlighten me?

    ....................... maybe I feel like it I don't know. Just mind your own business. BTW I didn't pay much attention to the code because it was the source code for it that I had downloaded from a site, I thought there couldn't be any errors.

    Yes;
    is your question about some source codes been problematic?

    for instance ch 4:

    the escape char VK_ESCAPE in WM_CHAR wont do anything
    for the program to end.

    the solution is to provide a WM_KEYDOWN switch(wParam)

    and use SendMessage(hwnd, WM_CLOSE, 0, 0) .

    is that your question or am i ahead of myself here.

    if u are asking to rate the book from 1 to 10 i rate it 6.

    if u havent bought it yet .then forget the first 8 lines.
    learn (C--)ak C->C++->WIN API->opengl.

    read the tutorials and buy the book as well.actualy read
    anything u can have your hand on.this way u wont miss anything.


    what the hell am i talking about.
    by now u must be thinking"whats wrong with these ppl on this board & why my threads attract the crazy one,s" .

    yah u r right its late and i have bad cold.

    gl

    cheers!


    *by the way if you want to truly learn C++ read "C++ how to
    program" by deitel&deitel and do its exercises, fully.dont trust
    SAMS that much.

    Well thanks for the info.......well I've bought the book already actually about 6 months ago......just hadn't gotten around to start reading it because I moved and was out of "computer commission" for around 4 months. In which I almost completely forgot what little I knew about programming. I have three Sams books.......hehehe.......but oh well......one on C which I read just about the entire book twice. And the other one on C++ which I am now reading again (for the second time) to see if I can pick up things I missed the first time, and to refresh my mind, since from what I already told you I forgot a lot of the stuff I knew, I guess I just need to refresh my mind, to pick up where I left off and keep learning. Well thanks for the advice on the book.......And no you're not one fo the crazy ones .

    Im sorry to say this, but how do you expect to learn something like opengl when you dont have a firm grasp on C++. I only have a mediocre grasp on C++/WIN32 and opengl is pretty easy to grasp, but you have to have a basic Syntax knowledge to learn it.

    Well maybe I like you have a mediocre grasp of C/C++ (well less than mediocre).....And also like you I don't find OpenGL that hard to comprehend. And I will say it once again that was an error in the source which I didn't bother to check. I don't really find the code in the book that hard to comprehend. If you actually read the entire thread you would know that I've been reading and implementing some C/C++ for about 1 year already on and off, I just forgot what little I knew for some reason over a 4 months time in which I didn't really use computers ( don't ask me why 'cause I myself don't know). About your C++ statement well I think you can do pretty well programming in the Windows API or any graphics with C, it doesn't HAVE to be C++. Ah screw it I don't have to justify myself to you guys.

    opengl is procedural .
    C is just fine. actually prefered (low level gaming logic)
    in direct graphic , its essential. but who cares about COM.

    hey elchulo2002 u r OK.

    just keep making mistakes.
    u will come out ,well informed at the end.
