I'm a real beginner and I'm just learning the very basics. So while I was studying from this website's documentation, I found out that my compiler(Turbo C++ v3.0, that is) doesn't support strings. So how can I use strings? Does it need a higher software version? One other question, I see that in the tutorial, it includes the libraries like this:
but in my case I have to write it like this so that it works:
why is it so?
I'd really appreciate your answer:)
He said it was a safe choice, not necessarily a good one.
Of course, I am not going to say what he meant, but I would recommend c++ if for no other reason than that there are more sites that I have found dedicated to c++ than anything else (excepting java and HTML). The sheer volume of the tutorials makes it easier, in my humble opinion, to learn.
I know I shouldn't probably ask this here but if I choose C++, what version do you recommend? The latest software in Borland website is C++ Builder(clearly stating that they no longer support Turbo C). Do you think it's a good choice?
Express is free and up to date so you don't have to worry about nonsense, that's all I'm saying. My school gave me professional for free, but I use a Mingw32 compiler from code I've made in Notepad++ for things that I'm more confident with (or don't want to open up a huge platform just to test code I post here). I also write C which has to be compiled on my school's UNIX server, and VS wasn't being particularly helpful for this.
