I'm well aware of many of the goodies you can create in C++, from console apps, to Win32 programs, to OpenGL animations and games...But since I'm not exactly a Win32 wiz-kid, and I don't work with OpenGL too much...what kind of useful programs could I create?
I mean, you've got your silly little Celsius-to-Farenheit converter programs, but then you also have cool-ass little console programs that read data off disks and can even perform some lower-level tasks and such.
At any rate, reading through some code on a few sites made me realize that I suck terribly at applying C++ to useful things. Can anyone perhaps point me in the direction of any lovely links that might show me some clever ways to apply C++ and such?
Oh, and....how are pointers to functions useful, too?
