I wondered if I already reached an intermediate level of C++ programming.

I know this is relative, but maybe you can help me.

I know and can use the following things:

-variables

-basic input/output

-functions

-conditional statement

-loops

-arrays

-vectors

-basics of pointers/references (I know how to use them)

-classes

-operator overloading

-inheritance

 

Thanks

I'm not sure there is a line in the sand anywhere, but IMHO if you are asking, then you are likely not. I do not see any mention of templates, or the std::lib, which are quite within the range of what I would consider "intermediate" programming in c++. I've been working with c++ for a long time(longer than i care to even admit sometimes) and pascal and basic before that, and I still consider myself quite a "beginner" in regards to programming as a whole. My advice, don't give it a second thought, go out and write more code.

Thanks people,

 

I already understood that there wasn't a real border between beginner/novice and intermediate.

I see now that my question is a bit useless and stupid, but to clear something out:

I asked this question, because I see often in books: "You need to have an intermediate level of programming knowledge"

and I just wondered if I had that already (just to measure what you'd need to know).

Thanks again, your answers helped me :D

Well, that is a very different question than the answers above are aimed at.

 

From that perspective, I'd say that it sounds as if you are at a stage where books aimed at "intermediate" programmers will be useful to you.
