Hello everyone, except for knowing much about HTML and knowing a little about PHP, I''m a newbie to programming. I recently purchased the books "Teach yourself C++" and "Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus". So this thread is just requesting basic online tutorials to learn C++.

I like the "Grounds Up" tutorials on Cone3D.gamedev.net. Here is the link.

There are quite a few more, but these and my "Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days" book got me through mostly everything I need to know.

Good luck!

And I also found this helpful when I was starting out.

If I can think of anything else, I''ll add it!

Good luck, once again. And welcome to the best game development website in the world, by the way!

What is programming, how do you define programming?

There are different definitions of this, but I''d say a language needs to be Turing complete before it can be considered a *real* programming language. By extension, I''d say that the act of programming involves manipulating the processing of a computer via some Turing complete intermediary. This could range from bit-twiddling through to using visual code generators.

I''ve never heard it said that HTML is Turing complete. It''s a couple of years since I''ve written any, but I don''t remember it having a logical branch or a loop construct, so I doubt it''s Turing complete. XSLT 1.0, OTOH, is Turing complete.

I think SabreMan described it pretty well...
HTML is a Markup Language (which are what the ML stand for...) not a programming language. Its like a scripting language (which, from my understanding, aren''t programming languages...its hard to explain...I read it in a book once, they explained it pretty well, I think it was a DOS book, might have been C++ though...)
