I am in need of getting in some practice for programming. So, I will be taking off on Fridays and Saturdays to practice more programming skills. I am fairly new to C++ and need to practice more to become better at it.

Here's some geeky trivia...

C++ is based off of the orginal C programming language. Within C, there is a shortcut you can use to increment an integer variable, which is commonly used in loops and such. So for instance if you had a variable named i with value 7 and wanted to increase it by 1, you would enter "i++".

So when the upgrade to C came out, they naturally named it C++ (C plus one)!

And now you know... the rest of the story... :lol:

Wow...you ACTUALLY learned something in one of Beasley's classes...I thought I was the only one listening...=p

For Extra Credit... How did "C" get its name in the first place...
