Here are the 3 responses you''ll get.

1. You should learn C first, then C++! C++ builds on C, so you need a firm grasp of those fundamentals!

2. You should learn C++! Since it''s a superset of C, you''ll then know both!

3. YUO SHOUD LEARN TEH VSIUAL BASIC! ITS TEH 31337!!!1

There are more details to each of these arguments, but what is important to remember is that by the time you are a competent programmer you''ll know more than one language. You won''t be able to help it. So it doesn''t matter WHAT you start with (as long as it''s not INTERCAL). With that said, I suggest C++, simply because most good C++ books focus on both design and coding.


Don''t listen to me. I''ve had too much coffee.
