To be honest, my programming skills stink. The College textbook I have been using dosen't do it for me. And I learn better by looking at examples. However, I have not been able to find a website that offers an extensive archive of C++ code examples. From the basics such as loops to data structures, to even some more advanced things such as semaphores or RCPs. The codes should be well commented. I realize that you can google lots of examples for each, but I've tried that already and it didn't yield any great results. I've come across topcoder, too. I'm not sure yet how it works, but somebody referred to it in the sticky thread in this forum. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
