Looking for c++ windows beginner tutorials
I've been following the tutorials on this site, and I've reached the Open GL tutorials. The only problem is it seems to be rushing the windows part (I don't want to learn how to do A, I want to learn how A works :) ) Done Google searches but all i can find is VC++ tutorials.
So I'm wondering if:
1: Is C++ and VC++ the same thing. From what I gather VC++ is an easier version of C++, not as powerful but easier to create Application for.
2: Are there any books/tutorials anyone would recommend about programming in c++ for Windows?
Thanks for any replies :)
