Re: Request a C++ Tutorial

Posted 11 December 2007 - 04:38 PM

I've keeping track of somewhat interesting programming topics that have been addressed somewhere on </d.i.c>, either in the forums, in the snippets, or in the tutorials. I've been trying to keep them separated by difficulty level, the topics and techniques they address, etc.

There have been a few mentions of programming challenges or keep-sharp projects by various members. I'm just wondering, is there enough interest in this to make it worth my while to clean up as a tutorial or something like that?

Personally, the tutorial that I would most like to see at the moment is a basic introduction to a graphics library. I myself have only worked with older DOS based libraries, or the Windows GDI (I did DirectX in VB). But I have been hearing a great deal about Allegro, Gtk, and Qt since I have been here at </d.i.c>.

hmm lets see..something comes to mind..

"Your program has build errors...Do you want to continue?"
--"No."

Errors:
1) You have shown no actual attempt at creating these yourself.
2) This is not the correct discussion to post that question.
3) Even if this was the correct discussion, we do not do the work for you
Errors: 3 Warnings 0.

Damn I seem to be using the oldest version of "walking compiler". I keep asking myself, wouldn't it be 2 errors and 1 warning seeing as 3) is more of a warning than an error? :D

So it would seem that after the (soon-to-be-epic) RodgerB vs PsychoCoder kudos battle of December 2007, the C++ tutorials section has fallen way behind VB.

This may be fixed if they split that forum into VB and VB.NET, but still...

Anyone got anything that they've been holding off on writing? Any new suggestions for others that are itching to show off their C++ knowledge but don't know where to start?

And remember, there are numerous topics in NickDMax's original post that still haven't been tackled yet.

Ha! Back on top, no effort expended. Kind of like winning the gold because the two guys ahead of you tested positive for 'roids, but I'll take it.



Seriously though, folks, it's been a while since the last C++ tut went in. Anyone having any ideas yet?

Re: Request a C++ Tutorial

I have a piece on C++ <string> in the pipeline, however, my time is limited right at the moment (As is probably reflected in my post count lately). When I get a spare afternoon I will finish it off. This idea was inspired by the countless C++ posts I see where a book or tutorial has instructed a beginner to use char[] for their string handling. (Something which always grates on me the wrong way, since I feel its unnecessary these days.)

With strings in mind, I think the tutorial section is in need of a good article which covers basic string parsing. NickDMax mentioned Code parsing, but perhaps there's also room for something a little simpler, like Comma-separated data, and maybe Regular Expressions (with a 3rd party RegEx library of course). another possible area may be string formatting for output. Since output formatting differs between C and C++, it might be an idea to have one for each, but that's for someone else to decide.

Although IMHO, winning the gold here is about quality over quantity. I'm sure the last thing we want to do is encourage a load of scruffy, half-baked tutorials in the C++ section. I'd rather see 2 or 3 well-researched and genuinely useful posts, than a dozen each which were just cut together in an hour

edit: Wrote a tutorial (and submitted) on preprocessor directives (the next chapter) #pragma, a few #defines, writing your own macros, and the importance of such preprocessor directives. Ack I didn't notice that RodgerB used the same #define example that I chose to use, I'll change it later if ya'll like.

Also, you can cross operator overloading off your list.

Can someone do one over programming a ZORK program? I'm not getting much replies in my thread, and google searches have turned up bland, and unhelpful.

Well lets see... by Zork do you mean a text based role playing game?

If you there are some tutorials named "Data Modeling for Games" which begins the journey. There are also several threads in the Game Programming Forum on text based RPG's -- some people have even posted their completed games.
