OK, so I loaded the Digital Mars C++ compiler and bought a book
(Dietel C++ How to Program 5th Ed.) So I am all ready to learn
C++............How Do I start? I know everyone is probably smiling
and laughing. I opened the readme for the downloaded
version ...went to [start][command prompt] typed in  unzip dm???
c.zip like it said to do, and my computer stared laughing at me.

Any help out there for a complete newbie?

Do you have an unzip application on your computer? If not, you should install one. At least Windows XP comes with a built-in unzip utility, just double-click on the ZIP archive and follow the instructions. If you don't have one, you can download many freeware unzip applications, for example http://www.7-zip.org/ Hope that helps.

I'm pushed for time at the moment, so can't muster the effort to help to get
you to the compiling stage. But once you're there I'll be happy to offer
advice on getting your first program or two.
