Does anyone know of a dinky C++ open source library that I could use to learn programming? I started out with a textbook but got tired of crawling. Anything with basic graphics (ascii, even) and file handling of some sort would be great!

if you want to learn a programming language, you need to start with the basics and work your way up. there are no shortcuts. some people learn the basics faster, others learn them slower, but everyone must learn them. you can''t skip any of the "boring" stuff because it will bite you later. now you can find a library, but you most likely won''t understand what it''s doing. and copypasting is only cheating yourself.

so i suggest you get back to that book.

if you have the word "newbie" in your post, take it to the "begginers" forums, all right?

It''s quite possible that a mod moved it between his post and yours.
