I have been learning C++ and I am passed the stage of a complete beginner. And now want to put my new found knowledge to the test by developing a project in C++. However, I need some good ideas of any C++ projects that are used out there in the real world.
If anyone has any ideas of what will make a good project that could be usefull.
Many thanks for your ideas,
Why not think of something you think would be useful for you on the computer, and then write a program to do it.
For instance, if you think it would be really nice to have program that would email you baseball scores after every inning, then write a program to do that.
Hope this helps!
Dependant on your skills =
* tic - tac - toe
* word jumble
* Crossword Generator
* Simulation of real world object - Elevator or ATM are popular choice
* Create a text console game - use AI and advanced OOP

Typing "programming contest" into your search engine will show many sites with many example problems to solve. Some of these are quite tough.
I would go with a web server, or an ftp server...
Rather advanced for a beginner, but you learn alot.
