    Question I want to learn programming

    Does anyone here know programming well enough to teach someone like me. I have very little Dos skills, and the most I've done is a couple of very simple batch files. Please help me out.

    First, get a compiler. Here's a list of FREE Compilers. Check out the programing tools page too.

    Next, try-out the first couple of tutorials. Here's another http:tutorial.

    After that (if you're still interested), you really should consider getting a
    book. There's a lot to learn beyond what you will find in tutorials. My recommendation is Teach yourself C++ in 21 Days by Jesse Liberty. The book is structured for self-learning with questions and exercises at the end of each "day" (chapter), and answers and solutions in the back. Warining - Some people hate all of the "21 days" books! If you search the board for "books", you will find more book recommendations opinions & discussion.

    You're probably not going to find someone here to "teach you" C++, but you will find lots of people to help you teach yourself!

    I really don't want to learn C++

    I want to learn DOS, and then I want to be a programmer-because I want to hack people

    Can anyone help me out?

    i think you have pretty much precluded any of us from wanting to help you by mentioning you want to learn it only for malicious purposes.

    NOOO....

    This is a big misunderstanding. I don't want to hack people badly, I just wanted to do stuff to like my friends, just to mess with them. Besides, if you're not going to hack people, why would you be trying to be a programmer?

    I'm working towards a Computer Science degree and learning programming so that I can contribute to the field of computer science either theoretically through a paper or algorithm or practically through the release of a good program. I am most certainly not going to college just to hack other people's machines

    Honestly, I don't think you have what it takes to be a hacker anyway. Hackers have a genuine interest in learning about computers and networks, not just malicous or mischievious motives. A hacker must be willing and able to learn on his own. Your post has shown that you are not independant enough to be a hacker. Also, you have no clue how to use the internet to your advantage. Why post in a C++ forum if you have a question that has nothing to do with C++? There are plenty of cracking sites out there. If you are so inclined, go find them and leave us programmers alone.

    "If you cannot grok the overall structure of a program while taking a shower, you are not ready to code it." -- Richard Pattis.

    So go away and pester someone else.

    > Besides, if you're not going to hack people, why would you be trying to be a programmer?
    No really, go away you insulting and ignorant moron.
    One more outbust like that and I'll change your membership for you.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
