Starting to learn programming
Okay, so, I've started learning C++ from random tutorials. I'd like to get into gaming and was wondering if it would be doable to lean a simpler language like Lua or Java alongside C++.
Also, I'm constantly studying Japanese, as an exchange student.
Do you guys reckon it'd be too hard?
As long as you keep working on C++ it shouldn't be too hard. It just takes time and practice. I stopped for like 6 months or so doing more important things and I basically forgot everything. Though, that wasn't much a problem since I took a liking to assembly and have been learning that instead.
oh so i cant break then learning c++ just at loops any tips
Pray 4 the best prepare 4 the worst
Would it be a good idea to try Java at the same time? Or just buckle down on C++ and do whatever later?
Learn C++ first, then Java. It'll be much easier since Java is structured in a similar way as C++.

As Jenny said probably not the best thing to start/stop/start. I use to do HTML, PHP and CS haven't used it in ~8 months and I am having trouble recalling a cascade stylish sheet format now.

Not really. I taught myself C++ solely from online tutorials. I never opened a book, nor did I need one.

That's besides the jewels of OOP. And AFAIK, a WHEN statement doesn't exist.
Sure it does.

At least now days there is a language that is usable in the immediate future. I learned BASIC, Pascal, Cobol, and JCL, and it did me absolutely NO good what so ever. That was back in the 80s, when it was being used. Meanwhile, the other schlubs in the classes were getting their pictures taken for the year-book, for "Future Business Leaders of America" and they're all nobodies, even today.
Sure, you can still use BASIC today, but big deal. I used to program in ASM for 65XX based units, then some small machine code, but that's all long gone...
C, C+, C++ has been around for years, and should still be in the immediate future. This stuff changes all the time, as well as HTMLs, Java, and so on. It will change one day, but I probably won't be around to see that. Maybe they'll just add another "+" to it?
Why limit yourself to a WHEN statement then? Why not

Heh, I doubt these languages will be in use ten years later. They're more than sufficient for the time being.
