    Starting C++;First Program

    Sorry about the title, couldn't really think of what to title it... I have never done anything with C++ before and was going to try to learn how, but I don't have a clue where to start... I wanted to make a program where you execute it and it opens some type of word file (like notepad), then you can type whatever, then it saves it as the date it was written (For example, 041009.txt). I would also like to add some password to it so that other people can't read the files...

    Is this possible, and if so, can someone tell me how I would do this or direct me to some tutorials that would help with making this? I would rather do it myself then have someone else make it for me so I can actually learn something about making programs... Thanks.

    Grab yourself an IDE (look into Visual Studio, code-blocks, etc) and then you can use the tutorials on this website to get you started. What you're asking is far from impossible, but I doubt you'll be making it in the near future.

    I downloaded codeblocks... I do have a little experience with programming... kind of... I've made a lot of programs on my calculator (TI-83+) and some things on games that used the if, else, etc. commands... So, I have a little understanding on how some of this works...

    Google "Thinking in C++" and download the free online book.
