I started learning c++ and have a compiler. I don't know if  basic may be  better or easier. Is there a basic tutorial and/or (&& / ||)  free basic program, or something, available, so I can see if I want to head in that direction or not(!)??

you might wanna try those two -
-http://www.verinet.com/~xxa/Qbasic/basm286.zip
-http://www.verinet.com/~xxa/Qbasic/asic50.zip
for VB freeware/shareware compilers , you will have to get old microsft ones ...

*personal note* - yeah althou vb is much more easier and faster to develop with , its not
                         wourth it , alot of VB programers despertly want to move to VC++ for
                         afew reasons [VB is slow , big files , the need to carry libs/dlls , etc..]
                         you can do alot more with vc++ and ther is a huge demand for it.
                         besides you wrote you allready know c++ , so why going backwards?

I think you can still download the VB Custom Control Edition for free from MS...

I didn't say I knew c++. I said I'm learning. I don't think any time you learn something it's going backwards, do you??

Good point. But, one thing not yet known. I'm learning for the love of creating, not to find a job. So I've made up my mind. I'll try to learn both. Jack of all, master of none is alright by me.
