That sort of depends on how much programming experience you have. For someone that already understands basic program flow and data structures, I prefer the Deitel and Deitel books. For beginners, I don't know of any right off the bat. Amazon in pretty good about rating their books. Are there any specifically that you are considering?

I was considering "Accelerated C++: Practical Programming by Example". Yea' I don't know much about c++ but once you learn one language they come alot easier to you after if you know what I mean. I ordered the book today after reading reviews it seemed to contain alot of information.

Learning C++ won't help you much with Perl or Lisp. :thumbsup: I'm pretty proficient in Java, but C confuses the heck out of me. C++ still causes me fits.

When you are learning a language, you are learning two things at the same time. First, you are learning the syntax and structure of a language. Second, you are learning basic concepts pf programming. Learning C++ is not the same as learning how to program, and learning to program is not the same as learning to program. In addition, C++ is an Object Oriented Language, so you have the additional task of learning about a programming architecture.

Good luck in your endeavors.

Thanks for the info I was looking for a C++ compiler
but I was wondering:
What is the G++ compiler provided with GNU and does it need GCC to be installed first
in general:
what is G++ , GCC , Mingw

G++ and Mingw are compilers, and GCC is the GNU Compiler Collection, but usually refers to the C compiler within it.
Most Linux machines come with GCC, but not G++. To get it on Linux if you have an internet connection, type this in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install g++


If you don't have the Internet, you'll have to go online and find the packages manually.
If you're on Windows, you cannot use GCC.

sudo apt-get install g++


Of course that is assuming that the distro has that particular package manager. :thumbsup:

Lol! I knew my attempt at being Linux-pro would backfire on me.
OK! If your Linux OS is DEBIAN-BASED, you can use that!
Happy? :D

You said that I cannot use GCC on windows , but actually I'm using it now plus G++ through Dev-C++ .
but there are always :thumbsup: problems ...
I cannot find the latest version of GCC and G++ for Dev-C++
