    How about a string class? It can be very simple or very complex depending on your experience with C++ and is quite a learning experience if you've never done it before. Especially if you try to keep it ISO conforming (bad idea if you're new to the language though).

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I seriously think that there should be a sticky thread at the top of the C++ forum with a huge list of project ideas for beginners.

    Yeah, either that or people could just search the board for all of the program ideas we've already posted.

    Anyway, here's a regurgitation of ideas I've suggested in the past. You can make them as simple or complex as you want depending on your level or expertise.

    Cryptography, write a cipher or cipher-breaker
    Mastermind(this is a pretty easy one)
    Calculator(very useful, as it can be used in other programs)
    and the one idea you can always fall back on . . .

    *drum roll*

    CARD GAMES! That's right. Any card game you can think of can be coded out for your enjoyment.

    "The computer programmer is a creator of universes for which he alone is responsible. Universes of virtually unlimited complexity can be created in the form of computer programs." -- Joseph Weizenbaum.

    "If you cannot grok the overall structure of a program while taking a shower, you are not ready to code it." -- Richard Pattis.

    An address book? If you know Ruby you can see an example I made on my site.
