    What do i learn after the basics?



    So then i understand how to declare memory spaces with their
    respective data types. (I.e Integers, Character etc.)

    I can use Cin (console Input) and Cout (Console Output)

    Where do i go from there? I want some thats related, like in
    the same dos windows, but some more code, for example a list
    of commands that perform things, any help thanks.

    Any Help Thanked,
    Phil

    I would try data structures. Learn about pointers; they are central to the
    language. Then use them in linked lists, and a tree. Next, or at the same
    time, move to classes and object programming. Combine several things into
    a large program, maybe a classic problem like sorting an array. File i/o
    is good to know too.

    learn about templates, the Standard Library's functions and their usage,
    STL containers and algorithms (as opposed to John's suggestion, I
    believe that the days of fatiguing students with manual implementations
    of linked lists, trees, maps and stacks are over. In most cases, you
    will never use your own data structures [hopefully!] so your time would
    be better invested in learning how to use the ready made containers and
    algorithms instead of reinventing the wheel). Learn about exception
    handling, string manipulation, pointers and references, and of course
    classes, object oriented design principles and -- never forget
    debugging!
