    Programming Tutorials

    Can any one suggest any programing tools / tutorials that will help me learn c/c++ and vb?

    The only problem with VB is i have to buy the program, whereas with c/c++ i can just download a compiler.

    btw i have a fairly strong java background, as that is what they are teaching me at university.

    I find source code resources to be a great way to find out 'how does that work?' try http://www.planetsourcecode.com unreal resource of code examples.

    often you cant beat a printed book too. One of the guys at work had a fantastic VB6 how-to written by Peter Norton. Really good for the coder starting out....

    Also if you program in C but learned Java first, becareful of memory usage.

    For ex. Linked lists in java get cleaned up automatically. In C you have to clean the memory yourself. Otherwise you'll get bad memory leak.

    VB in 21 days is always a good start ..... I started with that about six years ago .... now programming APIs etc.

    Currently writing a Winamp plugin to do the shuffle properly and was thinking of writing my own mp3 app but am scared of competing with Cobra and treading on peoples toes.

    bah!! dont worry bout that, it would be good to see some more mp3car apps hit the internet. When i finish my new TFT version I will release it, and I may release my current text LCD/IRman mp3car software too soonish, needs a bit more spit 'n polish for the public to use it tho!

    your winamp plugin to do propper shuffles sounds like a good idea. I noticed that quite a bit with Winamp..... my idea of shuffle is to play EVERY track in a playlist in random order, before repeating a song. The current version 2.78 does not do that... is that what you are trying to achive? If so that would be great!

    There's a book call something like "C for scientist and engineers" which I've found to be pretty good. Also search around on the net, most Uni's comp - sci departments have on line tutorials which are pretty good, I've used quite a few but I unfortunately can't rember which.

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    if you get a book and one of the authors is a "Deitel" then avoid it like the plague.

    I highly recommend O'Reilly books. They usually have a variety of levels ranging from beginner to expert, and it my experience, have always been great books for info and reference.
