I wrote 100,000+ lines of C++ code but I learned with "Cut and paste" . Try to read the examples, modify them and save it as your code. Later - you'll be happy to have them :))))

P.S. Of course there are books and tutorials too! <where????>

I used "teach yourself C++" 5th edition. by Al Stevens, MIS: Press.
Its got the attached CD rom with all the sample code on it.

Having been a programmer for 13 years now I can't tell you if this is
a great beginners book. What you need to do is go to a good store and
scan all the C++ books and wait for the feeling of "hey this looks
easy...". It all depends on how you like to learn and what level the
books pitch to.

One thing to look out for are the update books. There are number
teaching books that just teach you about the updates to a particular
package. Like the "Unleashed" set of books. I have "Visual C++
unleashed 4.0" and it was good for learning how to use the extensions
to VC++ since version 3.0 but not to learn C++. I would recommend a
learn C++ book and then if you want to learn your particular IDE get
one of those books aswell.

There are lots of web sites if that is what you prefer. I just like
books more.

Best of luck.

Oh yes, another great tip. Check out http://www.mcp.com/ and the personal
bookshelf option. They allow you to "checkout" books and read them online
for free and we are talking $50 books so its a great offer. Ofcourse you
are limited to MacMillan books but they have a lot of great C++ learning
books. Here are a couple

Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days, Second Edition
Sams Teach Yourself Visual C++ 6 in 21 Days

What kind of C++ do u have?

I got Visual C++ 6, and later I got a book called "Visual C++ 6 In =
Record Time." That was a great book.

Of course, there is always the more general "Teach yourself C++ in 21 =
days" or "24 hours" or whatever, but that is C++, and none of the IDE's.

Try a search ok Amazon.com for your IDE, like if u have Borland C++ 2, =
search for that.

Hope this helps :-)
