Changing languages (Visual C)

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, 

I decided to switch over to another mainstream language recently, Visual C++. 

AutoIt is my first language, besides HTML, and I have been using it for 4 years. But even after completing 3/4 of tutorials in cplusplus.com I'm still lost when I try to recreate same of my own programs in C, even the most basic aspects.

So, the question is, How hard was it for you to learn C++, comparatively to AutoIt?

And, where can I possibly find a good help file for C++? (like the .chm of AutoIt)

I realize that C is vastly different from AutoIt, but are there any sites that help to smooth the transition?

 

p.s. This is a longterm project, so I don't need sites like "C++ in one month", I need something just to keep me moving in the direction.

Btw my compiler for C is Visual Studio 2013, and I also have CodeBlocks.

I went from C and derivatives to VB then to AutoIt, and saw it, and still do, as an advance in programming. :thumbsup:

P.S. No need for anyone to point out the value of C etc, I already know, so I'm just saying. ;)

We are empowered by what we can efficiently use, not by what is a powerful tool alone.

Understanding is all!
