SpaceWorm++, just bookmarked this page.
@Fredbill30

I did check it in Graphics |DirectX, OpenGl & Other Libs group check through it. Good Luck.

@Veltas

No problem.

It looks like Fredbill30 has been canned.

That's a PSA worthy of its own thread, yet it does nothing but pollute mine. That said, rejoice!

Catfish4, my mistake. I thought I saw a question aimed at him and was just pointing out there would unlikely be a reply.
Not surprised. I warned him in a thread where he was reported that it would happen, yet he continued to do so.

As for excellent sites, seems all the ones I know have been listed, but this thread is now bookmarked (not to mention in my topics link due to replying).
Don't forget the "Tacking options for this topic:" dropdown at the bottom of the page, if you bookmark the topic there then in your My Topics you can list only the bookmarked topics.
I had forgotten about that. Thanks for that LB.

Apache C++ Standard Library User's Guide is perhaps the best tutorial resource on the web.

Way better than anything that this site has to offer.
I wouldn't use TutorialsPoint.com as I've found they have quite a few errors in their code. The first two that jumped out at me was the assembly tutorial has you install NASM but then says to declare global main main: but it should actually be global _start start: and the C++ random numbers example claims you only need iostream and ctime to do the example, don't even have cstdlib in the includes.

Every book or tutorial is going to have errors, I'de bet even the all powerful Bjarne Stroustrup has had a few himself. I took a look at that tutorial and it doesn't look to bad, although heavy usage of using namespace std;. Have you considered reporting the errors so they can be fixed?
Yeah I used their contact link and sent an email to them for both fixes.

[EDIT]
Apparently they do want to have it right, because they took down the assembler tutorial this morning.
