    How long do you take to master c++?

    Just asking, how long would u take to master the whole the whole c++. I study for already 1.5 years together with openGL but my standard of c++ still not good.

    Which c++ is the hardest topic to master?
    Any1 give me idea. I think pointer, templates, stack/queue is the hardest.

    Me? I suspect I never will. I don't need to.

    I don't know, because I have not mastered everything about C++ yet

    In order for me to master it, C++ would have to stop evolving.

    It depends on the person and the effort invested by the person. Furthermore, you are very familiar with C++? Big deal, unless you can actually program to solve problems, putting your familiarity to good use in writing maintainable, correct programs and bug hunting.
