    What's a good tutorial for Visual C++ (text tutorials)?

    I'm just about downloading Visual C++ and I'm assuming it's way different than TurboC .

    I would really appreciate if somebody could give me a useful link to tutorials for Visual C++. I could only find small one-program tutorials. After the basics I might want to dive into header files too so where would I do that?

    Oh and also: What's a good newbie-friendly GUI library to learn for Visual C++? I really want to get into GUI.

    Turbo C++'s main fault is that it is so old that it is not reasonably standard compliant, and since it has been discontinued it never will be.

    LearnCpp used to be really bad, but the guy working on it listened to feedback and now I'd say it is pretty good for starting out as far as online tutorials go.

    For books, if there were an edition of Accelerated C++ by Koenig and Moo that was updated for at least C++11, I would recommend that, but alas, though it might still be a good introductory read if you could borrow it from your local library (no point buying a copy). Presently, if you could obtain a copy of C++ Primer, 5th edition by Lippman, Lajole, and Moo, that might be a good bet, although it also needs to be updated for newer versions of the C++ standard, but the need isn't as critical.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
