I have a pretty basic knowledge of most concepts in C++ save some issues that I have surrounding polymorphism, and I just love the way it feels. But I have my first AS level computing lesson tomorrow, and it will be in Object Pascal. Will this actually be helpful, with regard to improving my programming skills? Or just a pain to unlearn C++ concepts and get around its hideous syntax?
I believe that a lot of people had to learn it at school - so could anyone share their experiences of it?
Also, would it still be reasonable for me to continue learning C++ outside of school, or should I focus on Pascal?
