    How about starting with the usual beginners stuff rather than jumping in at the deep end?

    I've got some programming experiance (not so much C++), and I think not this is realy a "deep end", but I cant find anywhere how to begin at it, and that friend that gave me the task, won't help

    No, but I can tell you take Salem's advice, or you'll drown.

    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.
