Anyway, I found this site, and read through lots of the C++ tutorials. It seems quite similar to Java. But now here is the problem.
However, I am very lost. I have WindowsXP, so I downloaded Visual C++ 2008 Express, installed it, and loaded it.
Now what? I can't find any tutorials on how to even CREATE a project in in VC++.
I tried creating one, and I ended up with weird header files (What are they? They are not covered in the tutorials), and what seemed like a main class, with 2 main methods?
I can't seem to be able to do anything. I can't even get anything to compile or run. I just want to be able to print 'Hello World' and then I will be satisfied!
But right now I'm incredibly frustrated, and it seems I just have to somehow figure it all out myself. I might as well just return to programming Java. :(
Can someone at least explain just the basics of how this all works? I am completely clueless! I have read the tutorials, but they merely cover syntax and class structure. How would I have multiple classes?
Look through the top and look for 'Start without debugging'. I started out with Visual C++ as well (though a total beginner to programming) and I was really confused, especially about creating a project as well.
Maybe try Dev-C++. I think it's more straight forward. That's just my opinion though.
