    haha, I've been calling it C-Hash for ages! whoops.

    Anyway, I use Java mainly, plus perl a bit for system command stuff.
    Also learning C++ in my uni course.

    yeah your probally are not the only one. # is the symbol for sharp in sheet music. I dont know why they decided to put that in a programming language. hash would make more sense.

    I'd recommend http://www.cplusplus.com/ anyone interested in C++

    I started C++ recently myself and that was my first source I think it's a great tutorial for starters.

    A lot of it I skipped though since I done JAVA before ;)

    LOL, I was also calling it 'see-hash' for ages until I picked up 'C# in a Nutshell' for $5 - then I realised it was 'see-sharp'... it's alittle ambiguous.

    Is there a book called C# For Dummies becuase I got a book called C++ For Dummies and I thought it might be by the same publisher

    I'd stay away from the Dummies books.. .I got one ages ago on HTML... granted it taught me some stuff, but too many jokes and a bit of an immature approach to the language.

    I prefer getting Reference books.. ones that go through the language thoroughly, but its organised well so you can go to whatever bit you need and see the API for it. Also because all my uni work needed these reference books... but its a good investment.

    Read those lectures I sent you. Primarily Software Dev 1. You want to have an understanding on writing a program before being specific with a particular language.

    I think you should chose a different profession.

    Why don't they create one language that can do everything and get rid of the rest.

    Would be easier :D or at least so I think

    Python, PHP4/5 and Java.

    I ocassionally look at C and C++ if I need to code a plugin or program that will execute quicker than programs coded in the one of the above languages (except PHP4/5). Ie: X-Chat plugins, etc.

    Coding is actually more of hobby for me not a career path, I prefer networking systems and hardware.

    I don't know which 1 to learn when I finish C++
