    Hi,
    My name is Aidan Paine, and I live in NY (upstate)
    I am very interested in learning all about C and C++ because computers are very interesting to me.
    Any knowledge that I have about compies is nominal and insubstantial in comparison to pretty much anyone on this site.
    It is my wish that some one if anyone would be able to tutor me in programming language, and how to, with hands on examples and demonstrations.
    If anyone is willing to tutor me, I would be greatly indebted to them, and eternally grateful for the generosity of the members and for taking time to teach a Newb.

    I've been perusing the forums, and they have a lot of knowledge, I am having trouble deciphering them.
    I have no idea how to make sense of the lectures and the notes.
    I will try some of the excercises, even if its an act of futility.
    Thanks Shabbir!

    ***An Update***
    I am reading the Cprogramming.com tutorial that you recommended. Its making some sense to me now.
    Apparently in order to be a programmer I need to write lots of Lines of Code, and have a compiler, and have tons of patience and a simple understanding of mathematical logic.
    Wish me luck!

    omg!
    GUYS! i just wrote my first program and it worked!!
    no errors or anything!
    I watched it!
    and now I'm going to toy around with this cout<< function!

    I did this
    #include <iostream>

    using namespace std;

    int main()
    {
    cout<<"HEY, I'M ALIVE! LET ME OUT!\n";
    cinget();
    }


    it might seem pretty simple and it was something I practiced with but it worked! and ITS a HUGE STEP FOR ME!!!
    you have no idea how happy I am.

    LOL!
    This makes me so happy, I can't thank you enough for the resources that you've given me.
    Now all I need is a better compiler thats better than the Borland. And by better I mean easier for a beginner to use.
    I tried the Code::blocks thing, but it just came out as a MSword document that said it couldn't run. And I think that was the installer. So I gave up and went to borland.
