Dear All, I need to learn C++ (a common problem no doubt) and could really do with some help. I've been browsing through an online tutorial and would like to try writing and running some basic code on my Mac. Could someone give me some pointers as to how I can go about doing this?, i.e. how I can set up an environment (if that's the right word) where I can type C++ and see what it does? (Please also bear in mind that I know next to nothing about computers and how they work and the various terms involved). I have OS 10.4 and, based on what I read somewhere, have downloaded XCode 2.5 on the basis that this will help me. Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated, James.
