Hi Folks

I was wondering whether I should go and learn C++ or not. I saw a good C++ book Last night but before I buy it I was wanting to know whether I should go to all the trouble to learn another Language ??

I am a VB programmer, and I realise that it is not as powerful as C++.

Would it be a good background and worth learning ???

I program in VB with DirectX and it is very easy, but would I get more power through C++

Thanks

If you want to program professionally, its a good thing to know. While you can program professionally with VB, and will be able to for a long time, learning C++ will give your skills more longevity and probably round out your programming knowledge more as well.

In a object orientated point of view, C++ is much more powerful, and this is probably the method for the future. Then you have direct access to everyting, you can grab adress to memory via pointers. Then DirectX is much more developed on the C++ platform.

I would recommed Petzolds "Programming Windows", it´s great.
