    okay, d/l a compiler, there are a bunch of free ones, like mingw and borland bcc55.

    www.mingw.org www.borland.com

    you could also d/l bloodshed dev-c++ which is the easiest to d/l, it comes with mingw.

    www.bloodshed.net

    dev-c++ includes an IDE, so it makes it easier this way.

    you could also d/l Quincy from:

    www.alstevens.com/quincy.html

    You could use both mingw and borland with Quincy 2000, but only mingw with Quincy 2002.

    once you have an IDE, and compiler, you will be well on your way.

    - alpha

    P.S. read the installation instructions with both compilers if you decide to d/l Quincy or another IDE. D/Ling bloodshed's, just read their site. The instructions are very helpful.

    go to bloodshed's website, and read how to use the program. Anyways, just write the code, save the file, and then click Execute, Compile. after compiled, run it.

    Hello World

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h> // for input-output
    
    int main()
    {
        cout << "\nHello World!" << endl;
        
    
        return 0;
    }
    When i went from learning html and javascript to c++ and java it was a little tricky too. Problem with programming is you can't make small mistakes. Eventually you will learn what the errors mean and you will be able to fix them. Only way to learn is to stick with it. Good luck, post the errors if that doesn't work.

    Especially with C++ where there are no small mistakes, just big ones :-) When I started with C++ I was shocked with how much the compiler complained! It's disheartening.
