Well I been studying like a rabid dog foaming at the mouth since I have a higher level language under my belt and my initial failiure at c++ as a first language. Anyway getting near the end of my first little tutorial and have a few more questions.
1. I have hear many opinions that C is not necessary or even prefered if you are going the route of C++. That being said I've been starting to become curious about strings and it seems that some C knowledge may be needed or prefered when it comes to strings. Would this be correct to assume?
2. Another question about strings... I have used sstream in a few small programs in the tutorial and researched it a bit. From what I'm gathering it is a class that creates an object of type string? But it is also refered to as a stream buffer which in my mind tells me it is somewhat of an array stored in memory which makes sence in a way. So before I start rambling in to many circles on this one. Do I need to concern myself with how sstream works inwardly or can I just learn it's funcionality and forget it? I would in either case be interested to know if it basically just allows you to create an array in memory and preform special funcions on that array.
Thanks so much and hopefully most of my future posts in this forum will come with associated code as I plan to start up a few small projects after completing the tutorial I'm working on.
