Or even better, how to translate C++ to QB... could be useful if you have seen this nice program, which was programmed in C++ and you want to translate it...

And what do you mean by that? Like, how to convert a C program to a QB program? Because that would just need a .exe to qb comverter...

Well, a long time ago there was document on the internet, haven't found it anymore, which told that e.g. INT arg_index would be ArgIndex AS INTEGER, void is SUB, etc, etc.

Tha's what I meant.

You mean like what are the QB equivilents of certain C++ commands? Because I was working on something like that. I could certainly write it up in a text editor if you'd like and send it to Pete.

An article about learning C(++) would perhaps be more realistic - to really be able to understand code written in another language to the extent that one can port it to another language, one must be versed in both languages. Just my 2 cents, anyway. :)

I'm considering writing an article for this one - if I can come up with a good topic and find enough time. :?

Well, yeah, that's pretty much what it is. I guess you'd call it "C++ for the QBasic Graduate" or something like that.

I'll type it up.

So you guys really do want a 'From QBASIC to C++' or some tutor like that?

I've already got a tutorial written, I just need to type it. It goes through:

-Basic skeleton/template of smaller programs (what files you need to include)
-Goes over equivelent of Print, Input, If/Then, Select Case, For/Next, Do/Loop
-Discusses subs and functions, additional variable types, tricks (like increment/decrement)

So that's the first part of it. In a later chapter, I'll probably discuss stuff like the C Standard Library, which will include topics such as opening files and using strings, and also discuss stuff like pointers, linked lists, possibly some object oriented stuff, etc.

I'll probably focus on this tutorial rather than my mode X tut, because I'm having a few problems optimizing things. We'll see.
