Please don't top-post. Your replies belong following or interspersed
with properly trimmed quotes. See the majority of other posts in the
newsgroup, or the group FAQ list:

The best way to hone your skills is to find a project, design and code
it. There are a million potentials projects, make it something that
interests you.

Well, when I first started coding, I reinvented the wheel quite a bit. For
example, MS-DOS had a find program that would find a file on the disk and I
wondered how they did it. So I did some research on directory calls, and
wrote a program that did what find did. Then I ran mine compared to the one
that came with MS-DOS and they ran in exactly the same speed.

A lot of what I did when I was new to programming was just try to figure out
how to do things. How does random file access work? So I wrote a little
program that allowed me to enter tape names and data and store them to a
file and retrieve them. Never used the program after I finished it, but I
learned a lot. Just about anything you can think of can be an exercise.
Some is OS specific (how much disk space do you have left? How much memory
is currently free?) some is generic (file IO is for the most part generic).

Think of a program you can't write, and write it.

Are there ways to check free memory space and free disk space?

Probably, but not in Standard C++. As Jim Langston said, it will be OS
specific.

Yes, but OS specific. Anything you write for one OS won't work on another.
