I need some help :-/, I am a newbie (am starting learning c++), so I read through the tutorial, and  I put in the code step by step, but, the code is getting errors in my compiler (dev-c/c++), and I'm completely confused. Could someone give me some help on this :-/? Does anyone know any sites with more c++ beg guides? Or should I just go ahead and buy a book on it.

I always recommend Thinking in C++ by Bruce Eckel, you can download it entirely from:

If you post the [small] programs here, along with the compiler errors and warnings,
we can help you decipher them.  But sometimes, you just have to attack them 1
error at a time until they are gone.  Start at the top.  Eliminate the first error.  Then
eliminate the next one. repeat.

and Don't get overwhelmed by compiler errors .. sometimes one error at  the beginning leads to 10 other errors downstream :) so if you remove the first all others are gone ..

I agree with jaime_olivares,

Thinking in C++ is an all-time book to have for C++
It covers almost all the topics right from basic to deeper levels

Going thru it would also hep you capable of understanding other [complex] books like
The C++ Programming Language by Bjarne Stoustroup


After Reading Thinking in C++, Effective C++ and More Effective C++ are also good references for some do's and dont's

The following link would also give you a good feel of C++
