    Your best off sticking with c++ at least for a year or two before
    trying to write assembly programs.

    dev c++ has gas and ld, though
    from most people say gas was made just for the compiler.

    Using nasm is easier on the x86 because just about all the documentation is in intel format, though when I have
    to debug a nasm program with gdb, it's real pain as there's no debugging info.

    If you do a university/college/TAFE course on general programming(C++), how long would it usually take to become a good programmer?
    ~Thank you~

    some have it, some don't, watch out for those who do....

    whats your definition of good? depends on who you ask, but your looking at at least 2 years.

    Perhaps you should try easier languages such as Turing before moving on to C/C++.

    Thats what I did. In grade 11 high School I used that language.
    Once you learn an easy language the concept of programming is the same in every language just different codes and thats what makes it very hard to learn at the beginning.

    Turing by the way is an Interpreter not a Compiler which is faster to use for beginners.

    for example in Turing you would output a message like this:

    put "Hello World"

    in C++ ... well you know.

    Is there a site/turorials/interpreter for Turing?
    ~Thank you~

    Is turing much the same as C++, but a little easier?
    can it be used to make applications/programs?
    ~Thank you~

    Its the same concept in programing but much easier and shorter codes.

    Ok, thank you, will do.
    Is turing a lesser known language?

    The same concept as programming? so it looks like C++?
    ~Thank you~

    It's lesser known to people who are advanced programmers, its commonly used in many High Schools and even in first year University.
    Same concept means its the same idea in programming but it doesn't look nothing like C++ cause the codes are different and shorter.
