    I'm a beginner to C++ and I'm slowly getting the hang of it. Got a homework which needs to be handed in real soon.

    I'm suppose to create a small program and need some serious help in some c++ techniques and the 'algorithms' used in the program. Can't seem to get my head around a couple of things even though i've looked at plenty of 'how to' books, 'c++ for dummies' and lecture notes.

    I can't ask my tutors, because they make everything worse. They start with complicated when it comes to explanations and don't understand by what one means when they say 'please explain in plain english.'

    Could some keen Computer Science students PM, I'd really really appreciate it.
    And who knows it may lead to a whole new friendship.

    BTW i'm not one to ask for answers, I don't expect to be spoon fed, I just like to be taught a technique.


    Feel free to PM, not a CompSci student, but good at C++

    Ditto - feel free to PM, but seriously - ask your tutors. That is their job! And you are paying £9k for the privilege. If they pitch it at the wrong level, tell them to pitch it lower / higher. I went through uni without pestering my tutors and I now thoroughly regret it. It is in their interests that you do well so give them hell!

    Good luck!
