Everything i've seen refers to C/C++. I recognize that C and C++ are separate programming languages but why are they refered to as the same thing?? In a program can you interchange either language such as using a printf() in a C++ source file, or anything like that? Also, recently i've been reading a book on game programming that says it uses mainly C but a little C++ where DirectX requires it. How does that work? I'm also having trouble deciding what else i need to learn. It goes straight from beginning to advanced and, due to the fact that i'm learning mainly from books, i read the beginning book and learned what there was to learn but i can't understand a thing in the advanced books. Any help or advice offered would be muh appreciated.
So it Goes.
