I'm a book kind of person. I learned by example... with introductory C++ books I bought. Here's a nice website if you're interested in C++ (for reference/forums), though I do not recommend the tutorial they have there: http://cplusplus.com
Hey, do you know what a compiler is, and do you have any idea on where to get one? If you don't, then I'll try pointing you in a good direction. Don't even bother "learning" if you can't test what you learn. Obtaining a compiler/IDE is the first step.
For now, all you need to know about the term 'compiler' is that a compiler is a program which reads your code and *outputs* a program which you can then execute; a preliminary step to run the program you've designed. IDE stands for "Integrated development environment", which is pretty much where you make and edit your code. 'IDE' Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated ... nvironment
Here's an IDE which I recommend: http://www.codeblocks.org/downloads/26
If you're on Windows, download the codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe
installer file from either of the mirrors. To explain what this is: it will include a C++ compiler
known as G++, which is part of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection), made for Windows; MinGW (Minimalist GNU for Windows).
