I am new to programming and have several books on starting out with C++.
I was just curious if there was a publication that has a list of codes and there functions and Syntax. Perhaps with examples of how they are used. Kind of like an Encyclopedia?
Thanks for the info, but I went to the Borland site and could not find that particular download. There was many file to download. you would happen to be able to post the link here? I would greatly appreciate it. :D
I checked out PlanetSourceCode.com, It does have a lot of codes, thats for sure. But I'm looking for more of a quick reference book on code, like
int main (int argc, char* argv)
I know what the int main() is, but the int argc, and argv is a mystery to me. I know that my VS C++ 6.0 automatically sets these arguments when I choose a simple Application. But it would be nice to have a reference to what they do.
>I know that my VS C++ 6.0
Visual C++ 6 is a very poor compiler for C++.
>automatically sets these arguments when I choose a simple Application
Then you should start with an empty project. Unless you're using command line arguments, there's no need to include those parameters in your definition of main.

Sorry, but the only reference that seems like what you want is the C++ standard. It covers the entire language in painful detail.
