    http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=133897 look under programing. Also Teach yourself C++ in 21 days by the Sams publishing groups is a good read to get the basics in your mind, then C/C++ programers bible, by jamsa is for better in depth application reference and teaching yourself.

    I would say learn plain C++ first, before getting into the Visual C++ mess that MS created. Do some basic console programming, just to learn the C++ syntax and OO concepts. Then, if you insist, move on to Visual C++, as it adds a lot.

    /can you tell I hate MS?

    RiOtEr I do agree with you about the deitel c and c++ books. I have used both sam's and deitel and think theirs are much better.

    there are lots of places to go on the internet that deal with C++ also if you dont want to deal with buying a book. Just go to google and look for some like...

    as mentioned by everyone, Deitel are highly reccomended for any programming book, we've used the deitel series at uni for java ever since they started making them i think, i can only assume that the C++ one is of the same quality as the java one, theyre packed full of tips and little pointers that other books tend to leave out

    a good C++ book that i've bought myself is C++ a beginners guide by Herbert Schildt
    as the name says it does start from the very basics of programming in C++ (it assumes no C++ background at all), but everything is explained in a very simple way that i find easy to understand, sometimes i need things dumbed down a bit when it comes to coding books and this one i have found to be very good, cost me $55AU so thats probly about 30 US

    Learning Visual C++ 6.0 by Ivor Horton is a very good book, teaches you all about just plain C++ and then the second half of the MASSIVE book talks about MFC programming with Visual C++
    Never argue with an idiot, they\'ll just bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience
