    On this sites homepage there are links to compilers and IDE's. Additionally there is informative information on 'What do I need to start programming?'
    i don't think most standard compilers support programmers with more than 4 red boxes - Misplaced

    Cprogramming Tutorial

    By the way, this should be in the C++ section of the board.

    It will be a while before you make any kind of game. Learn the language first then come back and ask. BTW: what is TADS ?

    Here is probably the fastest way to get into game programming.....

    1) Learn C++

    2) Read this book: "Sam's Teach Yourself Game Programming in 24 Hours."
    • "Problem Solving C++, The Object of Programming" -Walter Savitch
    • "Data Structures and Other Objects using C++" -Walter Savitch
    • "Assembly Language for Intel-Based Computers" -Kip Irvine
    • "Programming Windows, 5th edition" -Charles Petzold
    • "Visual C++ MFC Programming by Example" -John E. Swanke
    • "Network Programming Windows" -Jones/Ohlund
    • "Sams Teach Yourself Game Programming in 24 Hours" -Michael Morrison
    • "Mathmatics for 3D Game Programming & Computer Graphics" -Eric Lengyel

    Thank you all so much

    o and TADS is a pretty useless language, its only for interactive fiction
