Hi. I'm thinking of starting programming in c++ again. The reason i've stopped is because i never seem to get any help, if i have a question. When i do get help, it takes 1-2 days.

Now i'm looking for a irc channel to get help. Does anybody know a good c++ irc channel, where i can ask beginner questions?

I'd suggest consulting a book for beginner questions, because many programmers will find it most disrespectful if you ask them a question that has already been answered by a book you should have read. See this question for a list of books that I've been recommended by a number of helpful communities. Some of them I have read myself, and I haven't yet been disappointed (I'm easy to disappoint, by the way).

If you have a question that a book can't answer, feel free to ask it on irc.freenode.net ##C++. If it's obviously in a book, they'll just tell you to read your book. Be aware of this, and don't take offense to them because they are there to help.

edit: Sorry, I got the link wrong the first time.

Thanks. All my questions are usually something that the author of a tutorial, or book didn't explain. :-)

Sorry, I got the link wrong the first time. This question is the question I meant to link to. It has a book geared at beginners programmers written by the guy who developed C++ (Bjarne Stroustrup). You won't go wrong with that book.
