    learning c/c++


    At work, I use lotusscript, which is the same as VB, and javascript. It is not required for me to use C, but I'm interested in learning how to make simple game programs. I'm currently reading "The C programming language" and trying to get familiar w/ the language. My intentions are to learn C before I move on to reading about C++. Can you tell me is this the correct path to learning C++? Are their any other helpful things I can do in order to develop skills to become a C++ programmer? :)

    That is the path that I would recommend. Start with C, then move on to C++. The only other thing is practice and play around with code alot.

    the "the c programming language" by kernighan and ritchie? itīs the book that i learned c with. the best i can think of if you have the programmerīs mind ;)

    the next step after this is getting an algorithm book. depending on your needs. with these two, some experience and some good websites you should be able to do just anything.

    have phun, C is hard sometimes, but itīs worth it!
