    Question which path to follow??

    hi..
    i have learned the basics of C++ and i'm currently learning Object-oriented with C++
    But i do not know in which way i should proceed...that is what should learn, what path should i follow?
    because i consider that i have not yet learned half of C++ and i do not really know what is ahead.

    can u guys please clear this out..

    and yeah my aim is to successfully learn C++ in all its angle.


    Thanks for your attention!
    Regards!

    Do you have a spare lifetime to devote to it?

    The more you learn, the more you find to interest you. Just keep going and make your own path.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Why don't you learn the basics of C++, then the basics of a dozen other languages, and find the one that you enjoy the most. You shouldn't take advice that decides what to do for anything more than the next 10 minutes of your life from a bunch of people on the internet.

    The why should he listen to you to learn a bunch of languages .
    Woop?

    Ah, I know that feeling. I've been using C++ for about 4 years and I'm learning something new constantly. I find that as my programs get more complex, I become more willing to explore new features of the language, to see if they'd help. So I guess the best path to follow would be a on-a-need-to-know-basis-path.

    and yeah my aim is to successfully learn C++ in all its angle.
    Not a simple task. It'll take a long long time to understand each nook and croony of the language. And frankly, it's not necessary.

    I have been learning on a need to know basis so far. I come up with a idea or my friends make a program and I come up with a add on for it then I start learning all the commands I need, each time it gets a little faster and I learn a bit more.

    That's a good way to learn. You could also try doing the same task in less lines of code. See that you're not re-writing code that C++'s standard libraries already do for you.
