    Basic C++

    Hi, Just found this site. I am in my second semester of C++ programming in college. Will anyone be willing to offer assistance/be willing to help me learn pointers, stacks and queues and how to encorporate them into classes. The instructor is a little scattered. He shows us a template and moves on to the next subject.

    Hi! Welcome to the forums.

    Have a look at
    http://www.learncpp.com/

    If you post questions (specific or more generalised), we'll try to answer. If you post code then we'll be able to provide guidance/advice on that.

    What book are you using with your lectures?

    Good luck and have fun. c++ is a great language!

    I think you should go for the book Let us C . Its a very good book and just starts from basics and will give you indepth knowledge.

    You can definitely go for C++ first but i recommend that you should start with basic language C .Even there are not much changes when you go from C to C++. For C++ you can go for the book C++ primer and definitely Geeks for Geeks.

    Not recommended. C++ should be treated as a different language to c - even though they share much basics in common. There are many areas where the way you do things in C++ is different to how you do it in C - streams, input/output, strings, variable length arrays, parameter passing to name just a few off the top of my head. if you're learning C++, then learn the C++ way of doing things - not the C way which may work in C++ but not the god practice way.

    For C++ you can go for the book C++ primer
    The current version of that book by Lippman is way of date (referring to C++11 - the current C++ standard is C++20). The new version of that book is due for release 28 October 2021. For a current book on teaching C++, I'd suggest 'Beginning C++20: From Novice to Professional' by Ivor Horton.

    Note that on geeksforgeeks (as with much other web sites), there is much 'old' C++ code which isn't the current 'modern' way that C++ is written.
