    Question Yeah i know, im a noob

    Hi im new to programming in c++ and just wondering what i should use to start learning, as in what compilers and what tutorials.

    i have downloaded a book called c++ essentials which covers the very basics of C++.

    ATM i am just looking for a small compiler(i only have dial up) so that i can test what i am writing and see how the examples work.

    Any help is greatly appreciated .

    go to www.cprogramming.com, go to tools and click on compilers. find the link for Bloodshed Dev-C++. This is a pretty good compiler for beginners ( I still use it ) although the commercial ones a probably a lot better.

    The tutorials on this site are real informative, but you might also try a book called C++ Without Fear by Brian Overland. It is a good resource for people new to C++. Gives good examples and explanations (if not overly basic) and comes with a freeware CD that has a compiler on it. The book runs about $25 but you can probably find it at the local library too.

    I downloaded this compiler but it says i need a GNU Make file to compile stuff. Where do i get this or whwat is it exactly?

    im using the bloodshed compiler and i didnt have that problem. strange. any file needed really should have come with the install file. i checked my directory and found 2 files:

    one called: make
    another called: mingw32-make

    these where in the bin folder under the dev-Cpp directory? maybe its those files???

    ok now thats out of the way i would like to know how to add an icon to a application: atm the code looks like this:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    int main (void)
    {
    	double fahrenheit;
    	double celsius;
    	
    	cout << "Temperature in Fahrenhait: ";
    	cin >> fahrenheit;
     
    		  celsius = 5 * (fahrenheit - 32) / 9;
     
    cout << fahrenheit << " degrees Fahrenheit = "
    		<< celsius << " degrees Celsius\n";
     
    		 cin.ignore();
    		 cin.get();
    		 return 0;
    }
    and dont worry this isnt a school project or anything this is personal learning.
