1. That post is very difficult to understand. Is it really all that difficult to type out Standard English sentences?

2. Turbo C++ is a long unmaintained project. You'll be better off using one of the more recent compilers, such as Microsoft's Visual C++ 2010 Express Edition, which is free.

3. I've never heard of ANCI C++, but if you're talking about ANSI C++ then I'd recommend starting with a book. C++ is not an easy language to teach yourself using internet tutorials.

If you're just starting programming I'd recommend using a friendlier language such as C# or Java instead, unless you have a very specific reason to use C++.

Just my 2 cents,

You can use CodeBlocks or CodeLite

Both are OpenSource!

@comet@earth: We're trying, but we're unsure exactly what you need help with.

Like Billy said, you should considehttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/style_images/bc/folder_editor_images/rte-image-button.pngr NOT messing with Turbo C++. As a programmer, I recommend Visual Studio 2010 Express (Download here).

As far as learning the language itself, there are many free online tutorials (Such as this one).

Fyi, Telnet isn't a programming language, nor is it a programming environment.

For learning just core C++, Visual Studio 2010 Express is an overkill. Why download 700MB ISO, burn it to CD, and then install .NET 4, MSSQL Server Express, and other garbage.? Just for learning core C++ ? It does not make sense to me.

@Romeo29: It matters little what he uses so long as what he uses is *not* turbo C++. That compiler has not been supported in years and does not comply with the standard. Few libraries compile satisfactorily with it.

VC++ is easy to setup relative to the other major compilers, which is why I'd recommend it to beginners. 700MB isn't a big problem for most people.

I wouldn't consider VS C++ Express 2010 to be "overkill". The VC++ Express IDE is great for beginners, there's tons of documentation/tutorials that target it specifically, and for most computers today 700MB is a joke. I started programming in the Visual Studio IDE and I found the combined help of tutorials on the web along with the msdn library quite helpful.

So, for a beginner, I would definitely suggest Visual C++ Express 2010 OR 2008.
