Not again!... Another "tutorial" in which the C++ code begins with

#include <iostream.h>

Aw, come on! Read a recent book on C++ before posting a link to your
"tutorial", or at least hang out in comp.lang.c++, maybe you'll learn
something yourself. Aren't recent books available in US Mid-West?

Please actually *learn* C++ before presuming
to teach it to others. Thanks.

(The form of C++ discussed here is that specified
by ISO 14882, not some prestandard form or 'dialect'
of it).

Which means that you're not qualified to assess
or recommend a tutorial. I.e. how could you
know if it's correct or not?

and that is not my tutorial

I'm sorry I mistakenly attributed the material to you.
if you read it you will
see
A very cursory look was all I needed to know it
was not good.

Again, since you're admittedly a beginner, you're not
qualified to offer pointers to resources.

The best thing you can do is get some quality textbooks.
See the book reviews at www.accu.org for reviews and
recommendations (which include many 'not recommended')
given by proven C++ experts.

If you can't or won't spend money on books:
There's only one free online 'e-book' I'd recommend:
"Thinking in C++" by Bruce Eckel. www.mindview.net

Also be sure to read the C++ FAQ:
http://www.parashift.com/c++-faq-lite/

Also you will probably find useful the FAQ for
the 'learners' group, 'comp.lang.learn.c-c++':
http://www.comeaucomputing.com/learn/faq/
This contains many pointers to learning resources,
free compilers, etc.

HTH,

I think the best way is get a nice book. Here are some links that may
help you (the second has some links to tutorials):

One should bear in mind that it takes the view of already knowing
some C (it's C-oriented), _and_ that it contains a lot of disinformation
and Bad Practices(TM), but is nevertheless a great book.

Just read it very carefully.

E.g., at the start of the very first discussion of actual C++ it states

<quote>
For example, instead of the old style of including iostream.h, which
looks like this:

#include <iostream.h>

you can now write:

#include <iostream>
</quote>

which is simply incorrect and very misleading.

Read With Care(TM), but otherwise, it's great for gaining basic
understanding.

To just get started when your platform is Windows, I recommend my own
recent tutorial, which aims to be _correct_ as well as practical, at

<http://home.no.net/dubjai/win32cpptut/html/index.html>.

Also be sure to read the C++ FAQ:
http://www.parashift.com/c++-faq-lite/


Yup.

Agreed. I first read it to supplement others (e.g. Stroustrup)
which were still rather "over my head" at the time. So fortunately
I don't think I was misled too much. I've long ago learned not
to take all my information from a single source. Of course this
ng is a great source too, once one determines who knows what they're
talking about and who doesn't. (I'd place you in the former category
btw).
Just read it very carefully.
Good advice for any technical book.
E.g., at the start of the very first discussion of actual C++ it states

Yes. Should have at least said something like
"you _must_ (or at least should) now write..."

I've been watching that evolve since you first announced it.
Good job so far.
