    C++ test questions

    Hi all,

    Can you point to a site that has lots of C++ questions, so i can improve my C++?

    Im at the stage now where i have kinda grasped the basics and a bit more, but i want to move from reading the book to completeing lots of exercises.

    Lastly would you still recommend i stick with console until im pretty good, before moving onto c++ cli.

    Cheers RocketMan

    You're already here.

    C++/CLI is a different language, but yes, a strong foundation in the language is recommended before you move into graphics, and console programming keeps the user interface simple.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    C++ dot net is not recommended. It's Microsoft-only, vendor lock in. I suggest you try C# instead. Just so you're aware.

    Isn't C# Microsoft only?

    Nope, it's actually a standard and there does exist other compilers than Microsoft's one, though they're pretty poor as of yet.

    C++/CLI is an ECMA standard, too. (Or at least it's in the process of being standardized.)

    Well, that's great. But let's wait until it's finalized--Microsoft has been slapped on their hands several times with standards.

    Not in ECMA. Its members are organizations, not countries. MS has enough pull there to standardize even complete nonsense like OOXML.

    Well, thanks for the heads up. Good for those C++ fans out there who wants dot net too.
