    Bots

    I am not saying that I want to make those dumb chat bots, but I would like to make a few bots that roam around my PC checking files and performance, and maybe some net stuff. Does anyone know much about this or sites that might help me out?

    ya, incase you couldn't read between the lines, I was telling you,
    "read the damned tutorial and see how much you actually have to learn before you have little robots running around checking your files" don't be a jerk when people don't give you what you want to hear for free

    ... and if you don't want to offer constructive advice, fair enough, don't, but there is no need to be nasty.

    I was saying that because I have been programming in C++ for 3 year now, and I already know all the basics. I just need the functions to find certain things and maybe an algorithum or two

    Could you perhaps try to be a little more specific?

    ie. What do you want to do, What do you have, and What do you need?

    I think from what you said that you want something like a background program that goes through your system file by file, generating and reacting to data based on properties of the file(s).

    Please confirm/correct this, and tell us exactly where in the development process you need help.

    ie. Problem going through file system, Problem reading the desired properties of the file, Problem acting in response to properties, or do you just not know where to start.

    In which instance, an algorithm might be useful
