I have just finished Chapter 5 of the book Accelerated C++. Lately, however, I no longer feel like doing the exercises at the end of the chapters anymore. I want to rush through this book so that I will be able to create a program on my own as soon as possible, but that obviously is not advisable. I suppose I'm an impatient type who likes to see the result quickly...
That said, I still want to create a program (exercises are programs, but you know what I mean >_<), and since rushing through the book won't help, I'm going to do something with what I already know right now.
Roughly, the main things that I have learned so far are: loops; creating functions; vector, list, and string container types; returning error (although I'm extremely weak on this one); struct; separate compilation; in addition to other language features(?) such as typedef, const, using reference, etc.
So... with what I have already known so far, are there any useful beginner/basic programs that I can actually write? Generally, I'm interested in games, and with what I have learned, I think I can do something like hangman (or can I?).
Thank you for any suggestions.
