    need a simple program

    I was wondering if someone could write a simple program for me all it would have to do is you type in a 5 digit number and say the number was 12345 then it would open up a program, and if you typed in a different number like 54321, then it opened up a program and a certain text file, i would put in the programs and files and stuff. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    So, are you interested in learning anything to do with C++ programming, or are you just looking to blag a free program from that woolly specification?

    Baby steps. Get the book "C++: A Beginner's Guide" or "Beginning C++ Game Programming" if you are so inclined, and start reading and doing the exercises.

    Well post what you have so far, and some description of what you're trying to do, and we'll try and get you moving again.

    > If you have any helpful hints on learning C++
    Perseverance and practice.

    You'll likely need several books over time.

    Search the board for "book", and visit http://www.accu.org/bookreviews/public/index.htm
    Which one is best for you is a personal choice, so make a short list of recommended titles and then see if Amazon have selected pages for review.

    My personal favourite at the moment is
    Accelerated C++ by Andrew Koenig & Barbara Moo
