hey, i was wondering: i have a pretty basic knowledge of C++ now, I know about references, pointers(i still don''t get them totally),linked lists,classes,inheritance,not templates (i read about them in Teach Yourself C++ in 10 Minutes but I couldn''t quite get them),functions,polymorphism,virtual functions, and i''m thinking about this really cool idea of a wrapper class for something (how would you like to type:
Direct3D8 myApp(640,480,32,HEL,VB);
myApp.CreateSurface("mySurface",offscreen,128,128);
myApp.mySurface.data = image;
myApp.imageOpen("image",128,128,32,NULL);
myApp.Render();

) Ok, so it sounds kind of weird, but I like it. So, what I''m trying to say is , how can I learn more about C++? I want to learn about other C++ stuff to help me when I program. can anyone recomend a book for me at my C++ level ^ ?

It''s not C++ specific, but everyone should read this one(most examples are in C++ tho): Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software by Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson and John Vlissides.

Psalm 137:9: "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

Try taking a look at Thinking in C++ vol 1 & 2. Get them from Mindview.

Go to Guru of the Week. Don''t read too much at once, or your head will hurt.
