    the standard of code in so called online source repositories is very hit and miss. Sourceforge is one of the best but its more than just a source code repository. You should get Accelerated C++ by Koenig and Moo to learn from.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    accelerated c++ is the best book to start learning from. is that the stan lippman c++ primer if so thats good but not ideal for beginner like accelerated.

    Yeah I'm reading c++ primer, its starts out on basics, but puts a lot of vocabulary, concepts, the syntax, etc. on the reader all the time. This is great for reference, and for review, but not ideal when you're starting out the language.. and especially not if its your first language. I know the basics but reading this affirms knowledge, looks at it at different angles, and gives me a chance to learn the real lingo of c++ programming which isnt necessary to program (as I didnt know it before reading this book, but could still program, hence overloading newbies). It depends if you can handle such overload, because it is nice getting those terms down, but as most end up learning the lingo eventually anyway.. its more of a priority to learn the actual language in an interesting way (accelerated learning).

    I would still have gotten c++ primer plus and accelerated learning though, and read c++ primer plus after and use it as a reference.
    Warning: Have doubt in anything I post.

    GCC 4.5, Boost 1.40, Code::Blocks 8.02, Ubuntu 9.10 010001000110000101100101
