    First Project

    Okay, after reading through PPP by Stroustrup, i've decided to do a small project based on the Top Trumps card game. Initially, it will just be a local console based game against the computer, then I will probably look to add more functionality such as basic graphics/network play etc.

    I've finished reading the sections on vectors/classes, etc and just before pointers, so thought I would test my knowledge thus far.

    I just wanted to check something with you guys first. My plan is to have 2 classes, a card class and a game class. The card class will basically be an outline of the cards stats. If I say want 30 cards in the game, would I simply create 30 objects of the class and store in a vector?

    I will then have a game class, responsible for the game logic.

    Thanks,

    Darren.

    This sounds reasonable.
    Be sure to know about references and possibly pointers before starting. They are essential tools for pretty much everything.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    Okay, I will read up on pointers beforehand. By references, do you mean like pass-by-reference the & sign?

    Thanks.

    That is called a reference, yes.
