Hi. I recently purchased a book to try and teach myself how to write c++. I bought c++ for dummies 6th edition. It comes with a cd rom but the code::blocks program on the cd does work on macs i dont think. Id like to use the program cause it would make following the book easier. So heres what im thinking. I could split my hard drive and put windows 7 and see if the program will work with that, but since this book is a little old im worried it wont. Any advice on that? Also i been researching xcode in the app store, but im worried about spending $5 on a program and then having problems following the book and stuff. Also i know if i put windows vista on my computer the program will work, but if im going to go through the trouble of putting windows on my mac, im putting windows 7. Some one please help. Thank you.
