    I'm looking for good reading materials that I can past time away. Right now I'm reading C++ Programming by D.S. Malik. Anyone have some other suggestions? I'm taking Computer Science too.

    I don't like C++, but in my programming experience (C# and vB.Net), books are very intimidating... those that write them are often bland individuals who have the smarts to code, but not to teach others in a creative and productive manner. Anyone that I've met who has been a successful programmer has done so without the aid of books.

    However, taking snippets from tutorials is absolutely necessary... obviously no one can guess how to program.

    I agree with Deride, I didn't read shit, and i'm a fairly decent (used to be) programmer. I just played around with alot of stuff (VB.NET is easy to play around because it gives you classes and shit; if you do textbox1. it will list EVERYTHING possible for that control. Like textbox1.Text).

    VB.net is so much easier than c++ (IMO).
    Code:
    Private Sub Start()
          If runCmd.Checked Then
                Dim Proc As String = "C:\WINDOWS\cmd.exe"
                Shell(Proc)
          Else
                Exit Sub
          End If
    End Sub
    
    Tell me that isen't easy to understand.. Someone write a C++ equivalent.

    C++ seems like it's only useful for games and other complex applications.
    No point in using C++ to code anything that you would find on these boards.

    Take a look at Hello World for C++

    Fuck that.
