There are very few decent books on learning to program in C/C++, they generally fall into one of two category’s 1) Command reference manual 2) Rubbish 😂

I have the Programming principles and practices using C++ book by Bjarne Stroustrup and it would be good except it has not been updated to support newer versions of Visual Studio. The authors have written a special header file called std_lib_facilities.h that they include in most of their examples but it will NOT compile, for many reasons, on any later version of Visual Studio.

If you already know a bit of C++ then you can follow the examples without the header file but when it comes to the interesting bit where they explain classes by using them to define graphics functions you will find that the example classes are in the header file which will not compile !
