Today i bought C++ for dummies, well sofar it has been a big dissapountment. For one, it comes with a dos based compiler that doesnt like winxp. And two, its totaly dos based c++, no windows c++. So although im learning how to make dos programs, i didnt want dos, i wanted windows.Dos based c++ is a lot easyer than windows, thats why i was going to get the book. I am now angry, and even angryer that i didnt save the recept.
