Hello everyone, I'm new here, although I've been looking around the forums for most of the day. I'm extremely interested in learning C++ and am currently using this tutorial http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/ but I'm having a hard time understanding some of the terms that are used in the tutorial. I'm completely new to C++ and would like someone to talk to about some of the beginner stuff, if anyone has the time. If anyone has AIM my screen name is whipstckag0stop Thanks ahead of time.

You can try the #gamedev IRC channel (chat applet here, or irc.afternet.org / #gamedev).

C++ isn't the best language for beginners to learn first, generally (I'd recommend Python). But if you insist, you should use Google to dredge up "Thinking in C++" and "C++: A Dialog." They're free books available online, and I'd consider them a better source of information than the tutorial site you linked.

I'd checkout Python at least, but by no means am I saying not to learn C++ if thats what you want to do. Taking a look at Python though wouldn't hurt, that's all I'm suggesting. Good luck.

Can you recommend a good place to start learning Python?

Sure, I have plenty of tutorials for Python bookmarked. Heres where I started (before I had any programming knowledge what-so-ever) http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Non-Programmer's_Tutorial_for_Python/Contents .

There's this one I look at from time to time, http://www.freenetpages.co.uk/hp/alan.gauld/ . There's; http://www.ibiblio.org/swaroopch/byteofpython/read/index.html (A Byte of Python).
And a forum devoted solely to Python; http://python-forum.org/pythonforum/index.php.

There ya go, and again good luck.

Thanks! I'll look into it and finding a compiler tomorrow, it's a little late for me to be digging into a language now hehe
