    It's tough to find someone who has the time for that on the internet. You're better off trying to get some buzzwords from your teacher in class, then google them... if you can't find anything at that point, ask about them here and we'll either explain the subject or point you to a good website that explains it.

    Also, trying to hijack some other guy's thread in the C forum is very uncool and being uncool is a good way to lose rep fast here... which means you won't get answers. Read the forum guidelines and don't hijack threads.

    The tutorial on this site's pretty good for the most part, but if you really need an alternative to that why not buy a book? They're relatively cheap and you can find them at most local chain bookstores (Barnes&Nobles, Waldenbooks, etc.)

    >is there any one out there that could explain possibly even teach?
    The internet is more of a focused learning tool. We typically don't have the time or the ability to come up with good generalized teaching material, and even when we do, it takes a lot of time and effort. I've only written a handful of tutorials that I'm really proud of (one of them isn't even programming related), and I've been writing tutorials for years. That's why it's recommended that you use the web to supplement a course, tutor, or book.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Barely speaks English? I've had those teachers... he's either Indian or German, I'd bet... it's just their accent. Just keep listening and you'll get used to it. Eventually, you'll completely understand them and you won't even realize he speaks poorly.

    Go to cprogramming.com and start with C++ tutorial #1. By the end of #2, I believe, you will have that question answered. They might even cover I/O in lesson #1, but I think that's more about main and variable declaration if I recall.

    Yes there is a way to Write a Message in Code so it will Display a Message
    Code:
     
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    {
    cout<<"Text you wish to Display\n";
    system("PAUSE");
    }

    dont get into the habit of using system("pause");

    Use cin.get() instead.

    Or do not use it at all - Run program with Ctrl+F5 in VS or something similar for other IDEs

    Any Console application is supposed to be run from command prompt - no pausing is really needed there
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.
