C plus plus
Hey grigri and any other c++ coders out there. I'm brushing up on mine, and I figured the dos thread might be a way that would work for me too. I need to start with the basics, I think. I never quite under stood what I should include when I was coding basic apps. Last class I took was all dos based, and that's the complier I have now, but I have access to a visual c++ one at school and through friends. I've got a copy or the GNU C++ on hand. Maybe we could start with a word on compliers?
To give you an idea of what I (but not nesseccerally what others who jump in will) know, he's a lil list.
- Basic logic: if, loops, nesting
- varibale types
- cin & cout (rusty on the fine points)
- most of the syntaxt on those
- familiar with arrays and sorting
- only know concepts of pointers, objects, and functions
- basics of debuging
- only ever coded apps that ran in the dos box
That should be most of it. I'm probably fuzzy on my syntax, and often had a lot of syntax errors, so tips on that are welcome. I should be able to pick up syntaxt from examples. After we've chosen a compiler (or two maybe?), then naturally a few toy apps are good to start off with, but I'm hear to learn, so conduct as you see fit. Things don't have to be super structured like in a class room either. Eventually I'll make a list of apps I'ld like to code to give myself some goals and dirrection. We'll see how it goes.
