I am just taking my first steps with C++ (Borland C++ Builder 3).
Until now I have only programmed with Visual Basic, so it's quite hard to understand the syntax of C++.

Can anyone give me a small sample listing, like letting the user enter two numbers and making a mathematical operation with them by button-click and writing the new number to an Edit box?

Does anyone know a good link to a C++ beginners page with simple samples?

Thank you.

I highly would NOT recommend learning C++ on the Windows platform. Essentially, you would be learning too many different things all at once. It would be better to learn C++ using the command line compiler.

For example, you would create this program using standard C++:

  #include <iostream.h>
 
  int main()
  {
    int op1;
    int op2;

    cout << "Enter two numbers: ";
    cin << op1;
    cin << op2;

    // do something with operands
    int ans = op1 * op2;
    cout << "The product is " << ans << endl;
    return 0;
  }

Mhmm.. this didn't quite answer my question but anyway - you'll get the points.
Think I ought to get a book for C++ (I learned Visual Basic by just using the online-help but C++ really seems to a bit harder)
