    Up to Date?

    I've been searching for some C++ tutorial lately, but none of them seems to be "up to date". The header files are still "iostream.h" instead of "iostream" . And there is nothing 'bout newspaces either. How come?

    So long as you know the right way to do it, just read the tutorials anyway. If you're learning about pointers for example, it doesn't matter if they're using the deprecated headers. The info on pointers or whatever still applies.

    Books are the great to learn from, but don't dismiss tutorials completely. If the tutorial isn't up to date, you will still learn a lot from visiting these forums, since we seem to always criticize people if they use something that is outdated...
