    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... :-)
