    Question From Assembly to C or C++ ?

    Hi

    I was wondering, that if you come from Assembly Language,
    and want to change to C/C++.
    Which language should you choose C or C++ ?

    I mean, is there any benefit of learning C first, and
    then C++ afterwards, or is it just the same going
    to C++ straight away ?


    regards,

    If you want to move to C++, learn C++. C isn't some perverse in-between language that everyone needs to learn to start with C++. On the other hand, if you only have experience with assembly language, you'll probably find C easier to work with because it doesn't introduce potentially confusing high level abstractions.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I would say just go directly to c++ since both programming paradigms are totally different than assembly programming. I think that a lot of people suggest learning C before c++ because you can do a lot in C++ without ever learning about memory locations, arrays, data structures, etc. But since you have done some asm, you should understand memory and structures pretty well already.
