    Default Where to get started

    Well I have a book that I have had for ages called C++ For Dummies... it includes GNU compiler on a CD-ROM so I am wondering if perhaps I should begin with that or if there is a free online source I should begin with. I plan on going into the video game industry (PC) so I figured I might as well get a head start.

    So use the book but not the compiler? Or do I need to throw that book in the closet and never touch it again:P

    I suppose its not too bad, I read through a little bit of it. You might try to find Accelerated C++, its certainly a much better book and teaches better programming practices.
