    Get an idea on what you want to do first.

    Try this code:
    Code:
    #include <theworld>
    #include <play_god>
    
    using namespace omnipotence;
    
    int mylife_main()
    {
    while(still_alive) {
    setup_company(); develop_cool_game(); ipo(); trick_investors(); rake_in_money(); overtake_world();
    } return you_re_dead;
    }
    The compiler for this particular program can be found here:

    Excellent, you have a goal. Next, you need to learn how to program. This is a lifelong process and no one is perfect, there is no sage for programming. It takes a lot of dedication and hard work for anyone.

    Reading is your new best friend. If you expect to achieve your goal you will need to learn a lot and you will need a few books. Read the Book Recommendations thread at the top of this board for suggestions on what to get.

    If you thrive in a structured learning environment you should probably take a course in school. School courses are pretty good.

    Yes. Read books, manuals, tutorials and FAQs from reliable sources. You can search the web on any particular subject that confuses you and get good answers. We even have some good stuff here at www.cprogramming.com to get you on your way.

    Some programming books have "starter kits" that will actually give you a compiler on a CD on the back. You can check out your bookstore.

    I don't think it's possible anymore, but just make sure you don't end up with a copy of Borland Turbo C. It's ancient. Like ...Colombus discovers America ancient.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
