C++ should only take you 3 weeks

Not sure if serious. I'd say it takes more like several years.

Also, impressive bump.

Heehee, I was just thinking about posting that.

ive read 3 books like it and i barely get c++ as it is. as i told aardwolf the other day, the more i learn about c++, the more i like c.
I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Re: Entry Door - Where to start?
Personally whenever I'm forced to use C I always happen to find excellent places to use C++ constructs. IMHO void pointer casting and explicit typedefs aren't worth giving those features up, and I'm not a fan of how C lets you prototype functions without arguments.

granted, if I had to personally write a compiler for one I'd probably go with C, but thankfully there are plenty around already for both languages.

edit: and for the record there is a big difference between teaching yourself C++ in 3 weeks and teaching yourself how to program in 3 weeks.

Do you mean that the first part would read "teaching yourself C++ in 3 weeks, given that you already have some programming background (even if programming backgrounds can vary widely)"?

 
Re: Entry Door - Where to start?
Well, I'm sure you could do it if you had a background in object programming.
But then you wouldn't be buying "teach yourself in 21 days" kind of books...
The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.
