Romay Jean Sitze asked about using the book I recommended, "Learning C++: A
Hands On Approach," to learn programming skills. I would not recommend the
book unless you have previous programming experience. If you have no
programming skills, you might (may?) want to learn BASIC, PASCAL or Native C
before tackling C++ with its objects, istreams, fstreams, ostreams, and
bitwise features. BASIC will teach you fundamental programming concepts,
such as variables, input, and output. PASCAL will teach you about
arguments. And C will teach you about functions, structures and C syntax,
but not classes.

C++ was developed as a "programmmer's language" by Bell Labs. (++ means to
increment a variable; C++ is an "incremented" version of C.) I hear that
they're already working on a new version--C+@, which will apparently
eliminate some of the "leftover" Native C features of C++.

I'd like to find out what other OOP languages are out there. I've heard
about SmallTalk. Any others? How do they compare to C++?
