I’m a newbie to the forum, and looking to get some training on the above. I learned on Basic (long ago), and am longtime Turbo Pascal proficient. The local community college is an attractive vehicle, but has the C++ course timing too far out for my needs. A good online tutorial recommend perhaps? Maybe a YouTube adventure? Something else?

I’d need to install the compiler of course, and would like a text. All advice welcome.
Thanks,

lokeshjoshi,
Very helpful. Thank you very much.

In the moments after I posted my request, I began to think that perhaps C++ (or even C) is overkill for me. Not to mention the learning curve. For perspective, my task is mundane in that even a Basic program could handle. I don’t need object-oriented, and website use is far on the other side of the spectrum.

I have my trusty Turbo Pascal on an old box (Win 7), which is a hassle to use in some ways. I’m now thinking that if I could download a functional TP compiler on my current machine (Win 10), that might be the ticket for me. Hopefully convenient, small learning curve, etc.

I am an always-reply forum person (gratitude), and very much appreciate the time you spent helping me.
Thank you,
The Kingfish
