"C++ Real World Examples"
I've been studying from the "Ivor Horton's Beginning C++" book, which is great.
However, I would like to know where can I find some real world examples, from a beginners perspective so I can see where the C++ studing is leading me.
A good place for examples is open source projects (www.sourceforge.net). Do a search for C++ and pick a project that interests you. Or be more specific in your questions here and someone might be able to point you to a particular project.
For example, if you were interested in GUI development, we might suggest KDE / Qt (www.kde.org).
If you say you're interested in networking and interprocess communication we would say look at ACE .
One problem you might have is the fact that "real world examples" and "a beginners perspective" can sometimes be at odds with one another since real world programs can sometimes be complex.
