Ohhhh! Ahhhh! I see Bloodshet.net revamped their site -- much prettier now and appears to be a lot easier to navigate. If you have not seen it then you should visit and see the new and improved web pages[/edit]
Thanks for the heads up! It looks a lot better now...
Now I need a good assembly book we can all agree on
Don't worry about it. I've been programming in C++ for more than a year already, and don't really know any assembly. Learn it after you've learned some C++, or else you'll find yourself in an information overload.
Okay buddy, what exactly your intension is ? You have been recommended books in the prevoius posts by Mr. Dragon and Mr. Joe. Refer the previous posts for answer to your question.
I'll tell you a cheap way of learning C++. Read the plethora of tutorials available on the net. Maybe then you will get a hang of things and would be in a condition to decide which books are good for you on your own.
So for the time being:

Usually you want cin.get to execute when your program finishes on a compiler like Dev-C++. Why? Because users will usually double-click on your app, which will open a DOS prompt window, and when the program is done, the window will close immediately, so the user can't see the final messages printed out by the program.
On many compilers, cin.get is not needed, automatically append code to do this (Such as Visual C++) to save you the trouble.
