best entry level C++ program?
ive been spending some time thinking about learning c++...
i have no clue where to begin. id like to actually start from scratch, and ive seen some of the c++ for dummies book, but id like to start with something hands-on. perferably free, but id pay as well.
ive heard of lua, but ive heard people talking about it being an easy way out. im sure it will be challenging, but id rather do it right if i do it at all.
anyone who is into this type of thing, (i know theres a bunch of you around), let me know how you got started, and any suggestions you guys might have.
