    Tutorial Help

    So, I'm a broke high-school student teaching myself C++ and i need some good tutorials to help me do that. It's obvious by the first tutorial on this site that these are outdated and not up to ANSII standards. Can anyone suggest a site that contains newer tuorials that wont have to be translated into new code to get them to work?

    It's not as bad as it seems.

    ...that wont have to be translated into new code to get them to work?
    You might be thinking a lot of "translation" is needed. It's really not that bad.

    1- Add: using namespace std;

    2- Drop the dot-h from the standard header files

    3- Add 'c' to the old c-header names: <time.h> becomes <ctime>.
    You can find a list of all the standard headers (and their functions) at Dinkumware.com. Note - you have to click-thru the sales pitch to get the free reference at Dinkumware.

    That should do it!

    Yeah, but the OP wanted new tutorials that don't use the old headers. That one doesn't quite qualify.
