I'm new to C++, i'm learning with the help of Stroustrup Principles of C++ book, with this forum etc
I'm doing console apps that treats and operates with numbers and so on, as i see you do the same, at least that's what i see people asks in the forum.
Also i found a website with the list of awesome programs made with C++ (photoshop and so on) so i wonder....how hard is the step from making console application to real world apps? why i don't usually see questions relating that in any c++ forums?
I mean...it's like hard to believe that what i'm learning now will lead me to creating real and useful apps (of course i'm not aiming in doing a photoshop 2, but you know)
I have the feeling that all the books, forums and so on only talk about console app and stuff like that, but in the other hand i'm told that photoshop, windows, and a lot of huge stuff is made with C/C++, so i'm kinda lost here.
Can anyone give some light in this matter?
