Starting to learn c++ as an alternative to VB
I've just developed an application in VB. One part of it distributes another little program to other people (by cd etc). Problem I face is that I don't want them to have to install .net just to use this little side program.
So, I thought I would look for alternatives. Seems everyone uses c++ so thought I would head in that direction. I downloaded the new borland turbo C++ and got it all working.
Problem I now face is that I don't know where to start with getting tutorials etc. I did the tutes on c++ programming for console stuff (Beginner tutorials on this site) and I'm ok with the code etc. but am needing to do advanced stuff like shellexecute and reading xml files. I can't get any working due to my lack of knowledge of the C++ language in that direction (does any of that make sense?)
