It's great that you're interested in learning C++ on your own.

If you're an absolute beginner, or just like things spelled out for you very clearly, you might be better off with something worth money... like a book. I recommend this. I started with zero c++ knowledge and that book took me places.

If you just want to find some online tutorials, google is the best tool. Here's one I found that looks pretty organized:
http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/

Obviously, you'll need a compiler. Plenty of free options out there as far as environments go (MS Visual C++ Express is one), but some would argue that notepad and a command line compiler are the best tools for a beginner.

Welcome to the forums, too. and... parker... as in parkerbeast? :lol:

If you are into games, this is a pretty good book for beginners:

The content is laid out well, and it keeps things interesting and relevant.
