    Should I even bother pointing out that Elysia is turning someone off of C? Or should I just shrug and get on with my life?

    I am tired today. So I will leave it be. There is a sticky about books, And3rs. And although Elysia is not wrong or anything I wouldn't take her advice as meaning "Don't waste your time with C!" Because that is not what she said at all. With all the .NET nonsense and all going on these days, it wouldn't hurt for you to learn C#. But that is not me saying "Don't waste your time with C++." See the difference? I would save C# for a rainy day though. C++ is a .NET language too Its just I would rather use a stupid language than mar my C++ code with non-standard operators and crap just to use an API or system specification.

    :O
    Nor is it what I was implying either. I just mentioned "the right tool for the job."
    If we base a decision of C or C++, for computer software, C++ is the better tool. That's all.
    But then again, nothing is stopping you from learning how to use another tool
    But I'm hoping it won't be necessary once you realize how much C++ is superior to C

    There should be some free books out there, though.

    well our library sucks, I can always download, but that is illegal! ^^

    most of the books that people have said is good, cost money so.
    Well who cares, I want to learn, 1,2,3 lets go!

    I believe there are free books available for download.
    I believe the C++ books thread mentions at least one.

    Oh great, found a book, on like page 1 it is like "hello world" then the next chapter is simple math, then they jump to classes, isnt that a quite huge jump?

    Dunno, classes are pretty fundamental. There are more advanced techniques available for classes, so it will probably teach basics first.
    But give it a shot. Even if it fails later, you can get another book and you will still have the insight from your previous book that might help you on your way.
