c++ and win32 applications
Hi, I been wanting to start c++ (but i don't just want to do 16-bit applications), so can anyone please tell me a good book (that is up-to-date) to learn c++ and win32 applications ?

try using google there are lots of nice tutorials out there
i grew up on this one.
Since the beginning of time, Man has searched for the answers to the big questions: \'How did we get here?\' \'Is there life after death?\' \'Are we alone?\' But today, in this very theatre, you will be asked to answer the biggest question of them all...WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA?

Thx a lot dude. This should be very helpful. Most of the time the only tutorials I can find are ones that expect u to know a lot of what they're talking about, but this one seems to start from the novice level. Thx again, greatly appreciated.

For my studies, I have the book "C++: The Complete Reference" by Herbert Schildt. ISBN 0-07-882476-1 and more information on http://www.osborne.com. It describes the C++ standard and is basically platform-independant and compiler-independant. So you can use it for every platform and every operating system.
It is NOT a real tutorial, though!
Btw, the C++ standard is set since November 1997 so any book about C++ published after that date should provide plenty of information.
Keep in mind that many tutorials "in the wild" (on the Internet) might be a polluted mixture of C++ and the older C language. Most C++ compilers won't mind this but it depends if you're a language purist or not.

Thanks for your help guys. I think i found the book i'm going to get. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846
I think that book provides comprehensive information on c++. The information in 'The Complete Reference" seemed to be more for the advanced, and i've already been through the tutorials. All of that gave me a starting place so ty again.

The 'Complete reference' might indeed give a bit too much information but hey... It depends on how much you're willing to learn about C++. If you want to write a few programs, you don't need it. If you want to become a C++ expert, it is a requirement... :-)
