    I wont send a full one, but I can help you get started on one.
    1st give your ints, lets say, int a int b int c and int d.
    2end now call thes ints to make them add after asking the users input. Like, a=b+c;
    3ed now just say what a = to like: cout<<"anser is "<<a<<endl;

    If you don't know what's cout, you're not ready for a calculator. You need a fairly good understanding of C++ before attempting such a project. Start by reading the basic tutorials on cprogramming.com.

    I would start off with learning console programming first, before worrying about graphics. If you don't know what cout is, System::String will leave you crying in a corner somewhere.

    Talking

    If you want to do forms (i.e. Windows graphical user interfaces) the language Visual Basic would probably be much easier than C++. I remember using V.B. before and it was really easy. I would imagine you could pump out a calculator in no time (like 30 mins for a beginner) if you are trying to duplicate the simple calculator that comes with Windows.

    While true programmers might not consider your program to be the most manly it will nontheless get the job done.

    Ex: (I haven't read it, but it looks like a VB Calc Tutorial for beginners) http://prism.mem.drexel.edu/stanciu/...ual_basic4.htm


    P.S. I would help you out with your C++ one, but I don't use forms anymore, thus forgotten how.. I go the looooooong and painful route instead.
