does anybody know of a really good online tutorial for a C++/SDL beginner? I know enough that I've made a game, but I still don't know some simple things like using multiple .cpp files in a project or destroying surfaces, or all this stuff about pointers and arrays and strings. Where's a good place to learn these things online?

there are some really good tutorials on this guys page

pointers arrays and strings should be on ANY c++ tutorial you can google, maybe try the ones at cplusplus.com

for multiple source files it depends on your compiler, if visual studio, find some visual studio tutorials, if gcc or similar read up on make files

hope this is of help
