C++ FAQ Celebrating Twenty-One Years of the C++ FAQ!!!

Section 29:
[29.1] What is this "newbie section" all about?

It's a randomly ordered collection containing a few questions newbies might ask.

  • This section doesn't pretend to be organizied. Think of it as random. In truth, think of it as a hurried, initial cut by a busy guy.
  • This section doesn't pretend to be complete. Think of it as offering a little help to a few people. It won't help everyone and it might not help you.

Hopefully someday I'll be able to improve this section, but for now, it is incomplete and unorganized. If that bothers you, my suggestion is to click that little x on the extreme upper right of your browser window :-).
