C++

Hey, I'm moving up...  again.

Here's the message I posted on the Es forum - Game maker post:
Quote
Well... I've been looking around and am thinking of, well... moving up. Further.
For some reason, I've climbed this great mountain called Vb.net and made some pretty great apps when I finally scraped the ice off of my goggles... And noticed that this mountain is just a hill, and I want something more powerful. I want to be a real programmer. A professional one.

This next mountain I will be climbing is called C++. I will find a compiler that works for all platforms. I will learn, and start the dangerous journey up...

Sorry guys, this is going on hold. Once I get a pretty good distance up the mountain, I will convert this. It will be way more powerful and (Hopefully) multi-platform.

Anyone know any good compilers?

Use GCC.

Actually I found a good multi-platform compiler called WideStudio.

G++ is the most widely used C++ compiler (and it's free).

Oooh. Hmm...

Where is the page I download G++ at? I go to the site, but can't find any download sections.

P.S. WideStudio has everything I need but it seems a bit old the way the buttons and text is shown.

Now that I know the compiler I will use, do you guys have any cross platform IDEs?

Alright, I have a few IDEs, but I don't think I'm ready for it...
So...

I'll be learning how to program on the iPhone first. That should give me a large enough step that moving up to C++ should be easy.

You're jumping around to much... I recommend learning C before doing anything else. Some people may claim that learning C won't help with C++, but I've found that having a basic understanding of C programming helps a lot with understanding languages that are based on it.

Yeah. Though I think Obj-C on the iPhone should be almost as easy as C if not easier. Also C develops bad habits which can make you worse when you move up to OOP languages.

C isn't object orientated?

EDIT:

btw, what are you trying to make Gan? A network game?

I've read many documents that said that, though I believe they made C++ by adding OOP to C, plus a few other changes.

Nothing yet, just learning. Yesterday, I went through 3 iPhone tuts. It's pretty interesting. Hopefully I will learn fast enough to make Es's first game in the iPhone.
