    Question Little Help Here?

    I've been doing C++ for a little while now, and apparently, I suck way too much at it. People were *****ing about my word processing thing, and asking why it had no mouse interactivity or graphics. I was acused of being a COMPLETE noob who had JUST made his frist program. That's just about enough of THAT!

    Can anyone give me some links so that I can start learning how to use graphics libraries and program mouse interactivity?

    Thanks. It'd be REALLY apprechiated.

    People who don't know how to program (mostly those who visit your site?) will not at all appreciate your word processor thingy
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    Ok, that's NOT helping.

    That's what I'm saying, DOS crap sucks. I wanna at LEAST be able to use some graphics libraries and mouse interactivity. Someone, please gimme some links.

    No, it doesn't. There's just as much learning potential in a Console program as there is in an API. You can do some pretty amazing things in Console mode, and best of all... you get to learn the language.

    I was just like you at one time, wanting to jump to some graphical/interactive API because the console was boring. I made many attempts to learn an API, but eventually fell back to Console programming simply because I didn't know enough of the language. Learn the language! Then learn an API!

    Yeah, it's hard to impress your friends with a console program!

    www.cplusplus.com has some windows (WinAPI) examples.

    WARNING: This stuff is NOT easy. Even if you know C++, you won't recognize much of it, if you haven't studied windows programming. [IMHO] Windows programing is more than twice as difficult as console programming. (Whatever that means?)

    I don't think I could learn this stuff on-line. I really like books! The pages don't move-around or disappear!

    If you're comfortable with console programming and ready go for it, "Programming Windows" by Charles Petzold is an excellent book for learning, and as a reference. Just about every windows programmer owns this book.

    Oke, Who the **** called krak a NOOB?
    If you still want to react to these stupid people i suggest using
    Allegro , It's easy to learn and works on both C and C++,
    It's installation can be SUCH A PAIN IN THE ASS but when you get
    past that, You're settled.
