I think I have a decent grasp of C++ (by the book I have, Sams Teach Yourself C++ in One Hour a Day) - currently I am on STL options/usage. While I grasp alot of the "how-to-use", I can't seem to wrap my head around putting it all into a functional idea.
Could someone suggest a next-step programming book for me to move forward to, something perhaps which might elaborate a bit on things like a main loop that doesn't stop and wait for the user to type and modern program design.
After much searching, not knowing what I was searching for, it seems that Threads are an answer to part of my question above. Although the short tutorial says that it is a Windows thing. My question for that now is, are there other things that supply some form of doing this same thing?
