Hi everyone. I just registered into this forum a few minutes ago.
I'm a first year Mechanical Engineering student, fourth week in University.
I have already read the Forum Guidelines and Homework thread. I have also scanned through the FAQ board.
I'm glad to have found this Forum and register. I know that I will benefit a lot from this forum, for my course. Glad to be here.
I have just recieved the assignment questions for C++ from my university and I'm having problems. My lecturer on C++ seem to be not so good in explaining what he's trying to teach, so I'm having problems. Also one of the questions in the Assignment uses a method that we haven't learn, even though I think that we will learn that sooner or later, I would want to learn it now. I like to be ahead of my class. I have read through a few tutorial websites, and I also tried reading a book on C++. But I have difficulty understanding certain things because of my n00bness.... ...
There were three questions and I mannage to complete one of them.
For one of the other question, I need to know is how to use and if on words instead of integers. I tried reading the up string stuff, but I have difficulty understanding...
The question requires us to write a prgramme that can tell the realtion and the physical details of my family members. If I use numbers to represent my family integers, I am able to complete it.
But i don't know how to use words (writing thier name down) to represent them.
I read this FAQ how do i convert a string to an integer?? (C) but I still don't understand.
Also, I installed (well, actually my brother installed) a Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0. It works for him, but it doesn't work for me. Cause I learn to use <iostream.h>, but he uses something else, which I don't know. He does Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I know that Win32 isn't available in Projects, under New where as it is available int the University's Computer lab. How do I get it to work for <iostream.h>?..
Someone please help. Thank you.
