Default C++

Hey guys,
i'm just starting to learn C++, and seeing as the last programming language i learned was Visual Basic, it's a bit of a big jump.

does anyone have any advice or know any sites where i can get some additional help on this?

Look around and narrow your search on goggle for what you are trying to do with C++. Overall it's about as simple as VB in terms of if you know what you want do but you don't know how to program it, just play with it.

I did some HTML, XML, and DHTML a while back for fun. How I learned was going to random sites and looking at their source coding and ripping it apart in notepad and publishing it to the desktop. I would suggest do the same when You can.

are you doing a computer course in college too? I'm going from visual basic to java now.... C++ is later but from using it in game editors I have (witcher enhanced edition) It's a fairly similar. Basically all the same bar the name of the functions. Plus there are less loops.... No do-until I think.....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!
