ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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.

C++ is C++ everywhere . What can happens is, that sometimes, some headers are shipped with one compiler that is not shipped with another one. At the top of my head, I'd say conio.h that has, among many others, the function getch(). That will only work with DOS compilers as Borland, DevC, Visual C++. What you can do is to get started anyway. When something does not work, then try to find a work around for it. There won't be many problems though. The important is to have a good understanding of the language first, I believe. Here are some very cool tutorials:
I totally agree with aaa, I was actually using that book just before I read your post. It is AWESOME when it comes to learning things that are more indepth. The ONLY downside is that a lot of the code is in C and not C++ (although there are examples using C++). So you need to have a basic understanding of C in order to understand what they are using (and when I say basic, a VERY basic understanding will do).
