I am currently learning C++, from this book http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-C-T...00802533&sr=8-1&keywords=Game+programming+C++ and I am so far on the 200th page. Half way through. The problem is though, I still don't know howto write code in C++, I would have expected to be able to by the half-bookmark. This is my first language, I totally understand the material that istill the 200th page (functions, I/O, arthemitc operators, variables, constants, enumerations, loops, if/else, switch-case, arrays, functions, and refrences), so I also know the concept. But I don't know how to "code" yet. I don't want to become a game programmer. I want to become a system programmer, like in Unix, BSD, and Linux and stuff like that. The reason that I chose C++ is that because it's extremely powerful, low-level like C, and has high level things too, like classes and objects. Am I going through the rightpath? Or should I switch? Do you guys have any idea what I should do?
