    Question When to move on?

    I'm just looking for some advice from some of the more experienced programmers around here.

    My question is, when do you think is a good time to move on into windows (api to be specific) programming? I have a good handle on most of c++, but i'm wondering if I should be completely "mastering" it before I go on to windows coding. I would like to start atleast dabbling in it, but I don't want to do it too soon.

    Any advice or opinions would be appreciated, thanks.

    If you understand or can figure out what's going on, go for it.

    As long as you have a good understanding of concepts such as virtual functions, constructors, function overloading, and inheritance you should be fine.

    I think the other two have good ideas. As long as you think you're fluent with DOS, you can figure out just about anything. But make sure you know about object-orinetation really well.

    Salem, can this be moved to the FAQ. I asked this a little while ago and remember seeing it multiple times on the old board.
