    noob in need of master

    I am a newbie to programming
    I have read books, and am following the tutorial hare at cprogramming.

    unfortunately I tend to think a little to much on the strict guide lines side when I learn stuff

    What I need is someone who knows the C++ language inside and out and can tell me this works like that and there is no other way, or this goes here or there and if you put it here this will happen and if you put it there, that will happen.

    I apologize in advance for being to "needy" but I want to work on programms to. Actually I would like to work on games and stuff, and hopefully I will have something to offer this community afterwards.

    Just so you know, if you post your questions here on the forum, there are plenty of 'masters' who can and will help, as long as you ask smart questions:

    http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

    You will find that the advice of the community is usually better than that of an individual.
    Just Google It. √

    I agree.

    Most questions can be easily be answered by google or the search function in this message board. The answer is already out there most of the time, you just gotta know where to look.

    By the way, I suspect that Salem is a robot from the future.

    And, then you don't have to worry about some pedophile trying to get a date with you.

    What I need is someone who knows the C++ language inside and out and can tell me this works like that and there is no other way, or this goes here or there and if you put it here this will happen and if you put it there, that will happen.
    This:

    hello world program

    works like that:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>  //this goes here
    using namespace std; //this goes there
    
    int main()
    {
    	cout<<"hello world"<<endl;  //if you put this here, that message will happen.
    	
    	return 0;
    }
    There is no other way.

    How'd I do?

    >>There is no other way.
    Well, if you want to be really nitpicky, you could also take off "using namespace std;" and use std::cout. Alternately, you could change using namespace std to using std::cout/using std::endl. You could also have main() take command-line arguments, modify the comments indefinitely, and of course, omit the return 0;. Depending on your compiler and whether you're running from the command line or from an IDE and whether you're running in debug mode or not, you may also wish to add a pausing mechanism at the end of the program.

    If you're willing to go outside the standard, you can also create a Windows non-console application and then manually allocate a console and use WriteFile (?) to display "hello world".

    How'd I do?

    ok I 'll post question here

    My ultimate goal is to re vamp shadow run, it's a great game!

    but for now I need to know how to put together those little things I have learned and and I need a complete list of functions, operators and the similar.

    I took this code from the tutorials and modified, any feed back as to how to make it better?

    Code:
    #include <fstream>
    #include <iostream>
     #include <stdio.h>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
       int thisisanumber;
      char str[10];
    
      //Creates an instance of ofstream, and opens example.txt
      ofstream a_file ( "example.txt", ios::app );
      // Outputs to example.txt through a_file
      a_file<<"This text will now be inside of example.txt 1234567890 \n";
    
      // Close the file stream explicitly
    
      //Opens for reading the file
      ifstream b_file ( "example.txt" );
      //Reads one string from the file
      b_file>> str;
      //Should output 'this'
      cout<< str <<"\n";
      // b_file is closed implicitly here
    
      cout<<"Please enter a number: ";
      cin>> thisisanumber;
      cin.ignore();
      cout<<"You entered: "<< thisisanumber <<"\n";
      a_file<<"You entered: "<< thisisanumber <<"\n";
      cin.get ();
          a_file.close();
      return 1;
    }

    Well, I'd just like to comment on your opriginal post, first. In Programming, there is NEVER "one right way to do it and that's that." A lot of teachers, books, tutorials, may say that, but it's mostly their opinion and the opinions of those they learned from, etc. Of course it's not ALL opinion. There are so called "bad ways" to do things, or ways that may produce other unwanted effects.

    The key that I have found to programming is to make sure you know what you're doing. When you write a line of code, try to figure out exactly how it works, or at least pretty close. When you know how something works, it's infinitely easier to figure out how it may have not worked the way you expected, and finding problems will be much faster. If you come across something you don't know how to do, or you want to implement a function or something that you've never used before, do some research, ask questions, maybe even write a separate "test" program and see what kind of results you can get.

    Now, to your code....

    I've only recently begun using C++, but I've worked with C for a long long time, so I'm not an expert at C++ style iostreams. In the case of
    Code:
      b_file>> str;
    I don't know if that takes care of the extra '\n.' That could be something to look up.
    Other than that, I see nothing wrong with it.
    Code:
    void function(void)
     {
      function();
     }

    how do I declare system?

    std::system("date /t > example.txt");
    std::system("time /t >> example.txt");

    System commands, I'm not too familiar with either. Sorry.
    Code:
    void function(void)
     {
      function();
     }

    It's not a good idea to this with "system()". It's not compatible with all systems etc...

    try this:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <time.h>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    	time_t date=time(NULL);
    	cout<<"Time is "<<ctime(&date)<<endl;
    }



    char str[10];
    //...
    //Reads one string from the file
    b_file>> str;
    You mean, read ten symbols from the file? Then you must do something like:

    Code:
    //declaring with one extra symbol (which is reserved for the '\0' element, which MUST terminate all char strings)
    char str[11];
    
    //reading ten symbols from file and putting them into our string
    b_file.read(str, 10);
    
    //assigning '\0' to the last element to terminate the string
    str[10]='\0';
    
    cout<<str<<endl;
    The OS requirements were Windows Vista Ultimate or better, so we used Linux.

    everyone has their own way or style to looking at problems and solving them. the more you program the more consistent you will be at choosing a solution to a problem you have. and you're in need of a master?..well, all masters are in need of students because sometimes the master does learn from the student...
