    Talking N00bie to C++

    Yea. Im 15 years old an interested in prgramming......yea.
    And this iste had great titorials but were a bit confusing.

    I don't have the $ to get a book. What is the best tutorial that you have used for beginners?

    And as for a compiler, i'm using Dev-C++

    I'm on a Windows XP home sp2 laptop........

    This one is nice. Also, if you aren't using Internet Explorer, CornedBee (IIRC), one of the members on this forum has a good one as well.
    Kampai!

    Books are much high quality than internet tutorials, if you find a decent one. But as you've discovered, the price and lack of convenience is a major drawback. Just check the computer section at your local public library (that sounds like some PBS ad) - it's been a great resource for me. Bonus acitivty: Feel the backs of the books for something stiff = CDs = free software...

    Sean... You should know better than that... Use ==.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    It's not a conditional. It's also not an assignment. Such behaviour is undefined by the standard. I overloaded the operators. You should know better than that...

    Of course I should've included the class's code too...

    Bah... Stupid encapsulation!

    Anyway, to be a productive member of this discussion, as they become relevant to your particular areas of learning in C++, I recommend GotW.

    It's still incomplete though. One of these days, I have to continue my work on it.

    Wow, all these 15 year olds programming! That's great! I started a bit earlier, but that's a different story. One of the best things to do is look at your library. Most systems will have at least one good book. One of my favorite books is Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days by Jesse Liberty. It starts at nothing and takes you all the way through the Standard Template Library in 21 days. It takes anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes per day.
