So, I was reading the thread by kevinawad and while I got a good laugh, I got to see a little of ya'lls advice... But I have a question or two for you. I thought I might try to learn c++ since I needed something new to learn, and I loved the ideal that your not held to the internet to run it. I use html and css all the time, but sometimes you want to do things without the net. It looks a lot like PHP (my dad uses it so I know some about it) and seems pretty easy in the beginning (a lot of memorizing and making your brain work in the c++ style lol) But I'm wondering, can you do just about anything with c++ or is it mostly used for certain things? I thought you could make the program run in a window instead of just as a dos program, but I couldn't find a tutorial or anything talking about that? Could someone point me in the way of something? Or can you not do that untill your more advanced? The way I've always learned things is to skim through the learning, then come up with something to do or build and learn all the details as I need them instead of learning a bunch of things I might not need for months and then forgeting them. Is there anything I should know before I get too deep? I read the Intro to C++, If statements, Loops in C++, and Functions tutorials on this site so far... I think thats all the questions I have for now... Thanks for any help!
