    >yes i want to learn how to use C++.
    You came to the right place then.

    >Were can i get the following things Compilers,Text editors, Debuggers
    www.google.com. A good compiler is Borland C++ 5.5, another is Bloodshed Dev-C++. Both are free downloads. Good text editors are vi (my preference) or emacs, both available at www.gnu.org. You could also use notepad, textpad or whatever other text editor you can find that works with raw text instead of some silly file type like Word. Search google for debuggers. I find gdb to work nicely.

    >Im wondering were i can get them
    By going netdiving.

    >and how much they cost
    Only the time to download, install and learn them.

    -edit-
    meh, that's pretty expensive, silvercoord from these boards got it for a hundred dollars or so, i think he just happened to get a good deal on it though, i can't remember. I know he just had visual C++ .net though, not the whole studio

    There is a wide variety of good quality free stuff available which is just as good for learning purposes
    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    well, hey, i've only been programming on the computer for a year and a half now, and i've gotten pretty far, i'm completely self-taught. I've found that you just need to take negative thoughts about your interests with a grain of salt (making sure to not tune out everything, of course)

    -edit-
    evidently the people you talked to don't understand what it's like to be able to make virtually anything you want with code I find that the best joy of programming is when you've been working on something for hours on an adrenaline rush, compile and run it, and it finally works just the way you wanted it to! I get the same feeling from coding that some people probably get from jumping out of planes. When I've been coding for a while without any people interrupting my train of thought, I am just basically completely "in the zone" and I can shoot code out like crazy, without even having to think about it sometimes.

    That's all you need, desire.

    >I mean i might not be good at school like math etc
    I'm not good at math either, yet I garner plenty of respect around here as a programmer for some reason.

    >i dont care ima still learn how to do it
    Good. If you succumb to peer pressure then you won't get very far in anything.

    The same way you send the content of an int array to a function:
    Code:
    void func ( somestruct s[] );

    Re: Structure Array to a function

    Alright thnx but from inside the main function, when I want to call the Other function, says can't convert struct* into struct.

    since its a void function I have written like this to call the function
    other(test);
