Hey..

Well do you know the games Half Life 1 & 2.. Counter-Strike..? Their engine was coded in C++...

here's a bunch of books of C++ on amazon.. http://www.amazon.co...1276157-1688851

And there are compilers for C++...That's where you code the language in.. Microsoft has one..borland has one.. and there may be some others.

matter of preference mostly. but there are subtle differences, none that you'll notice on a higher level, just that they do things a bit differently at the core. mainly people pick based on the usability of the interface that comes with the compiler. I like bloodshed dev.

C# is a subset language of C++. It's often said that if you know the C++ language thoroughly, you know 90% of the C# language. Here is Wikipedia's explanation of C#.

there isn't a C+ but C is the forerunner of C++ and a really nice language it is too.
