    Does anyone answer these Topics?

    Hi, I am wandering about computer programming in C++. I heard I should start with C++ becuase starting with just C programming can mess you up and now a days more and more programs are running w/ C++ code.
    Well I bought a book to help me out and I am reding and all and everything (the book is called Sam's Teach Your self C++ in 24 hours) yea right!!!! It has been a long time and I am only on Ch. 5 anyways I was wandering if any one could tell me a little more about programming or anything else you think I should know.
    Thanks a bunch!
    Ted
    P.s. This is off the subject but does anyone know about networking? I need some help with that too.
    Thanks again!

    the key... patience

    Take your time... absorb more and more as it goes by. Have you been able to compile and run a basic C++ program yet?

    # include<iostream>
    using namespace std;

    int main()
    {
    cout << "Hello world!" << endl;

    return 0;
    } // end main

    Start there and work into more and more features

    # include<iostream>
    # include<cstring>
    using namespace std;

    int main()
    {
    string sentence;

    cout << "What do you want me to say: ";
    cin >> sentence;

    cout << endl << sentence << endl << "I said it... the end";

    return 0;
    } // end main

    and on and on until you are a evil microsoft visual programmer!

    Good luck...

    p.s. Go to school... you learn more there than in Sam's books.

    alright thanks for the help yes I can compile things but i really havn't had the time yet. I want to read it first then compile or do you think I should compile and run programs as I read? Go to a programming class you mean? Yea I am going to see if the University has any classes open for programming. Thanks for you're time. I apreciate it.

    Reading is fine... but it is the actually pain of starting coding that teaches you. Practice practice practice....

    Oh... learn higher math too. It helps.

    www.dinkumware.com
    www.roguewave.com


    these will give you history and information on current standards in libraries etc...

    www.borland.com
    pretty good free command line compiler here. You need to brush up on dos skilz and know about environment settings. Read the borland set up info for their command line compiler if you chose to get it.

    Realize that all of your coding to start with will be in a console. (Click START/RUN and type 'command' Click OK... that is a console)

    You have to start coding to learn anything...

    I understand! Thanks a lot for the web sights. Now you know with my Samsa book they gave me a compiler with that book I can use that? or would you suggest me getting the Borland one? Alright I am going to go check out those web sights I will be back on the boards in a few minutes. Thanks again.
