Site software updated 11/23

Hey all,

I updated the site software today, including the primary software and a bunch of plugins. So far everything seems to be working great but it’s very possible that something has gone awry somewhere.

If you discover anything that seems wonky, please leave a message on this thread and I’ll look into it.

Thanks everyone!

Alex

    Hi Alex, I notice that the auto-menu we used to get when we hover over a code snippet no longer appears.

    • The newest version of the code snippet plugin doesn’t need it. You can now directly highlight the snippets with your mouse and copy them to the keyboard buffer. The previous version couldn’t do that, which is why it needed the menu.

      Hello Alex, Thank you for your web site, I am 56 years old and would like to enjoy learning C++ I have typed the code in for Hello World and downloaded visual C++ 2010 free version. I know this as been written for Visual 2005, the trouble is when it comes to compiling the code F5 it comes up with an error? the project is out of date? would you like to build it? Error, Microsoft Resource file to COFF Object conversion Utility has stopped working, A problem caused the program to stop working??? you know the rest of this error, It then says there were build errors, would you like to continue and run the last successful build: Yes or No? then it says unable to start program E\C++\learning\Helloworld\Debug\helloworld.exe’.the system cannot find the file specified?
      1>---- Build started: Project: HelloWorld, Configuration: Debug Win32 ----

    Alex, just a suggestion, but could you put up a donate button? And a pdf version of this website? I really appreciate this website and have been reading a lot here lately. Started at 0.1 and at 6.3 now.

    Is there a pdf or other document version of the C++ tutorial on this site or otherwise? Any download links?

    Hello Alex,
    Posted: 06/20/2014 You’ve done a great job here. Your work is really appreciated. However the last update is quite old and I hope you are still working on the site.

    I believe the need to use “using namespace std;” only needs to be used once in a program now. I always place it under any #include statement.

    In section 0.6 you say:(pasted)

    “In any function where you use use cin or cout, include the following line:

    1 using namespace std;”

    This is confusing! Because the wording seems to say. “use it in every function with cin and cout in it.” Will you please clarify this at your next update. Thanks
