    Newbie

    I am new to C++, I tought myself HTML and figured this would be a good next step. I am trying to learn it like I did HTML. I just printed some tutorials and am going to hack away until I figure it out. Anybody have any ideas about if this is the best way or if I should try something else. I am in the Army stationed in Egypt right now so access to books about C++ are no where to be found.

    books can be found on the internet. Two of at least some value, some people like em, some don't, are J. Liberty's Teach Yourself C++ in 21 days, and B. Eckel's Thinking in C++. Both are available at several sites.

    It is also a good idea to download one of the free C++ compilers so you can do some writing/compiling of your own code in addition to just reading about it.

    Ok, I will look for the books online, although we have had some real problems getting things shipped here from companies in the US.

    I downloaded Bloodshed Dev 3.9 and am going to try out Hello World and some number games first.

    Thanks for your help

    This is a link to an online, full text version of J Liberty's book. You don't need to get hard copy at all if you don't want to, although in the long run I still feel more comfortable having hard copy available, if for no other reason than I can flag pages, usually there is a better indexing sytem, etc.
