G'day!

You don't have to use MS Visual C++, but it seems like most ppl use it these days.

* As for a start I'd go for "The Waite Group's C++ Primer Plus" (an excellent book for beginners) and a free DOS C/C++ compiler.

* "Windows Game Programming For Dummies" by Andre Lamothe is a great beginner book for getting started with DirectX.

Compilers are usually in the $100-$400 range. OR, you could get DJGPP at www.delorie.com which is a free compiler -- although you won't get all cool features some of the commercial compilers will give you.

Hi!
Just wondering, how much does C/C++ cost? Do you H-A-V-E to have Visual C++ to make apps, games? ok is this about all you need:

Book:$30.00 Compiler:$0.00-\$10:00(??)

and what else do you need?
