Few pointers.

1) c++ is considered by some, not good for beginers. But I don't know it yet so don't take my word for it.
2) USE MULTIPLE TUTORIALS! ( http://www.programmingebooks.tk/ )

Good Luck!

Welcome! The C++ workshop is definitely something you want to do if you are learning. It will make the trip a lot easier with the help that people are giving. Also, anytime you ask for help, the more information you give up front will make it easier for people to help guide you. For instance, what compiler and OS are you using? How long have you been learning C++?

Again, welcome to the fray!

Ok, ill look into it.. Im using Visual C++ 6.0 At the moment.. and using Windows XP.

I also have Linux on here (Dual boot) im not sure what i am going to use in there yet.

I also imagine C++ is going to take me a year or 2 too learn it all ;] Thanks for your replies.

From what I understand you could work with C++ for years and still continue to learn new things.
