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

Question about posting here


As some of you know from a couple of other posts of mine I am in the process of teaching myself C++. What I was wondering is if it ok to ask C++ newbie questions here as I learn and run into problems or is there another forum more suitable for this?

Excellent. Some of this seems a little overwhelming, until I figure it out anyways, and it is nice to know there is a place I can just post and ask questions. Right now though I need to take a break. I just gave my self a crash course in hexadecimal, octal and binary. I thought I should know it if I am learning C++, lol. I can't believe how easy it is. Started playing around with different things. Anyone know my age? It is 10010b , 22h(I think) and 4o. Well it is if I did it right, lol.
This is fun

Edit: Yep, I did do that wrong, lol.

Edit: I knew it didn't look right. It should be 42o not 4o and 100010b not 10010b.

Ok, example:
You have the main forum listing, and there you can see the many forums at LQ. At the Programming one atm I've got the link Programming and then next to it is View New Posts.
If you follow the Programming link you get the forum's contents. Top right of this page is the New Thread button, same as described in that link to the FAQ I gave in my last post here.

This url should take you to the Programming forum's New Thread page. AFAIK you should be able to access the option from the start, Newbies with less that 5 posts cant post urls iirc.

What browser are you using? Do you have images blocked from LQ.org? Have you been on other sites that use the vBulletin forum software?
