Need help getting started
Hi, I posted a message in the game programming section. But Im a little bit confused, so my prob is probably more suited for this section.
Im trying to get started in C++ programming. But im a little mixed up with what compiler to choose. I started trying to follow the C++ tutorial in the FAQ section (the 21 days one.) I've encountered a problem, as the code examples from that tutorial will not work in Dev C++. The 'cout' function has different closing tags (or whatever you call em). As a beginner, im not sure which compiler is more or less, the most "compatible" (aka, the IE of compilers.) I don't want to get any bad habits into my head from a compiler I may not use in the future.
Well any suggestions or opinions on different compilers would be much appreciated, thanks for takin the time, hope I can get learning.
Oh ya, im stuck with windows 95 OS for now (although I may buy my own cheap system in the coming months.)
