    Beginner

    I'm new at programing in C++. I'm looking for sample code for Borland C++ builder 6.0. SO that I can learn off of. I'm all so looking for some one who can answer questions that I mite have and to give help.

    What I wanted to stat with is some thing simple like an address book. Or some thing like that.

    Thanks

    if you have never programmed in C++ (or any language) before, an address book is not as easy as it seems. You may want to start with even simpler programs to get a grasp on the syntax first.

    C++ is C++, doesn't matter what compiler or IDE you use (theoratically anyways, but for simple programs you are going to encounter at the moment, it's true practically as well).

    That is what the forum is for. Make sure you have done your research before posting a question though.

    First off, Yes. I have don't some programing is Basic and pascal. I just wanted to see if I could do it in C++. But the coding is not the same or even close. Thats why I was looking for some simple samples. Not just parts of a program, The whole thing.

    I all so have a tutorial on Borland C++ builder. It just that I think the tutorial is too old because some of the options are not available in the version of borland that I have.

    What I'm looking for right now is some one who has some time and can help me step by step. in creating a sample program. Using code and forms. I haven't been able to find out what relation the code and the forms have so that when some one clicks on a button. Some thing happens.

    So you are trying to create a windows application (rather than a console mode application)?

    I would suggest that you separate the C++ learning and the Windows programming learning - you need to be fairly "fluent" in C++ before you attack the windows programming level.

    Start going through some of the tutorials on this site for C++. They cover most, if not all, of the language features. Once you have the basics working, create an address book console application. Try to keep the user interface and the "database" function separate. Once you have this working, you can move on to make it a proper windows application.

    Its best to walk before you can run. As the old proverb goes well for programming. BASIC and C++ are totally different.

    Start with somthing as simple as

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main ( void )
    {
       std::cout << "I am learning C++" << std::endl;
    
       std::cin.get();
    
       return 0;
    }
    I would also suggest getting a good book. There are some good recomendations on the book thread on this forum. Some are better than others but they all more or less teach you the same basic ideas.
