    Question Need C++ and a tutorial

    If this should have been posted elsewhere, then I'm sorry. (This is related to programming, though.)
    Where can I download a version of C++ for Linux? Also, can anyone point me to a good tutorial website of C++?

    If you install gcc (the GNU C Compiler) and gcc-c++ in YAST software management they should help. Or you can select 'patterns' and have a browse through 'base development' or 'C / C++ development'. Or just install them en massse, they aren't that big.

    Can't recommend any tutorials, but the actual "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustup is an awesome book. It should be - he wrote C++.

    C++ Primer by Lippman and Lajoie is also quite good for a beginner, but it's a bit on the unnecessarily wordy side...

    [ETA- the thing with C and C++ is they don't change. If you're serious about learning, get a book, because the basics won't go out of date...]

    Yes, I've already got a book on C++ (or maybe I haven't... Don't know where it is anyway) but that's very very outdated. It was written in the time when MS-DOS was a popular PC operating system. That book even explained how to install C++ on a MS-DOS system!
    Do you know of an online free C++ tutorial for newbies like me?

    Hi,

    maybe cplusplus.com - The C++ Resources Network is what you are searching for.

    Hope this helps

    I don't know any websites for C++, but 'Programming and Problem solving with C++' is a good book to learn from.
