Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using "C++ Weekend Crash Course", written by Stephen R. Davis. I typed in the code that he listed in his book, saved it, opened up a console and typed, "gcc Conversion.cpp -o Conversion". I just got a page of errors. Then I tried using the code that is on the cd that came with the book, but with the same results.
Thanks in advance,
or maybe since you said that it worked better, but also it didn't work and it put you back to the command prompt, maybe it just compiled successfully and the executable is just sitting there waiting to be ran
that would be my guess. successful compile and program is just waiting to be run. if you just used g++ filename.cpp then the program is a.out but if you used g++ -o filename filename.cpp then the program is filename. try running it.
